I Love Salvia officianalis aka Common Sage

Jan 24, 2020 | Love This!

Name: Salvia officianalis aka common or culinary sage

Type of Plant: This herb is a perennial in zones 4 to 8. It grows best in full sun and well-drained soil. This sage is semi-evergreen and flowers in early summer in most regions. 

Why I Love/Hate this plant: What’s not to love about this plant? Pretty gray-green leaves, great flavor, easy to grow. This is an herb that should be grown for how it adds to the look of a garden and how it enhances the taste of a meal.

A Word to the Wise: I think it’s worth planting several Salvia officianalis plants in several areas of your landscape. Put some in your herb garden, for sure. But think about using this in and among other perennials or in rock gardens, and even in front of shrubs.

Salvia officianalis is desirable in the garden for the look of the foliage alone.

Use common sage to garnish food or cocktails!
