Beautiful flowers, delicious sage!


I planted a few seedlings from this on a sunny and dry part of my house a few years back, now they are a beautiful sage bush. They flower amazing bright purple flowers every June. The bumblebees love it! And I have an endless supply of sage! I have even given it to a neighbor who planted it at her second home up north in hardiness zone 3. It's thriving there too!



Last year, I grew in a large planter on my deck - zone 6a. It grew wonderfully. This year I'm going to transplant some in garden. It has very good flavor, just chewing the leaves, and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. I dried some and appeared to store good - and retained color and taste. I'm very happy with the results

This is an awesome sage!


I love sage on roast chicken and turkey. We grew this entirely to dry and store to incorporate into rubs and sauces. It's ideal for drying and has acted as a perennial for 3 years. We had a cold we winter for zone 10 and it seems to be finally dying off. No worries, 3 years of great sage production is plenty. We will plant out fresh again this year, can't wait!
