Salvia officinalis 'Purpurea' "Purple Sage"

An indispensable herb! Once you’ve cooked with fresh sage, there’s no going back! Delicious and versatile – it adds a unique savory flavor to any dish. This highly ornamental compact variety stays under 2’ tall and wide forming a dense mound of smoky grey and purple leaves – perfect for adding contrast to the edge of a bed or container. In Summer, 2’ tall flower spikes support lovely hummer-attracting purple blooms lasting several months. Excellent in a container! Provide rich, well-draining soil for a happy plant. Evergreen in warm Winter areas.
