With silvery gray foliage, Sage makes a fine plant in the herb garden. Add a pinch to season an omelet, flavor homemade sausage, or fry as a garnish for potatoes - a little bit goes a long way. If kept unclipped, striking purple blossoms will appear. In the fall, harvest the bounty to weave into an aromatic wreath to hang above the winter hearth.
Plant Information
Sage is a perennial herb with thousands of years of history. For centuries, it's been a grown for its fragrant flowers and lush leaves as well as its herbal value. Also called Broadleaf Sage or Common Sage, this plant can grow to nearly three feet in height and produce broad, muted green leaves and tiny purple flowers. Used as a seasoning, Sage lends a bold and zesty, lemon-like flavor to any meat, poultry, fish, or vegetable dish you can imagine. It's best to add Sage as a garnish or spice after cooking, as it can lose some of its flavor impact when heated. Sage is a member of the "salvia" family, a name derived from a Latin word meaning "to save or heal." It's been said to be helpful medicinally in a variety of ways, including as an antiseptic, memory enhancer, tension reliever, and digestive aid.
