Perennial in zones 4 – 10. Salvia officinalis Purpurascens. 1′-2′ high and wide. A gorgeous culinary variety, this sage shines in the garden and the kitchen. Has the same flavor as regular garden sage, but the young leaves start out purple and mature to a silvery green. If you keep the plant trimmed (harvested), you will have purple leaves that look amazing next to silvery lavenders and such all summer long. When the plant does bloom, the purple blossoms attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Requires full sun and does not appreciate a lot of water. Tolerates alkaline soils and lots of heat. Deer resistant and drought tolerant, too.
