The famous old western novelist Zane Grey titled his most famous novel, Riders of the Purple Sage. There was a country/ rock group in the 1970's called, New Riders of the Purple Sage. I have spent a lot of time observing Sagebrush and related bushes like Tumbleweed, Rabbit Bush, Snakeweed etc. It never looked purple at all to me. A lot of golds, yellows, greens, and blues to my eyes.
