Salvia greggii

Autumn Sage

Much-loved aromatic plants, the perennial and shrubby Sages are grown for their huge variety of flower colors and their long bloom. Colors include bright red, true blue, white, orange, purple, lavender and pink. The dried leaves of many types are used as cooking spices. Species come from many places in the world, so care needs vary widely -- some prefer heat, sun and dry conditions, while others need shade and moist conditions. All benefit from shearing or deadheading. Sold in containers throughout the growing season. Check specialty and mail order nurseries for a large selection of lesser-known varieties.
