Sage is a perennial herb with culinary, ornamental, and medicinal benefits. Classified by botanist George Bentham in the 19th century, its fragrant narrow leaves with grayish green undersides offer a savory taste and strong fragrance, ideal for culinary use. Growing 2–3 feet tall, this sage produces purplish lovely purple-blue flower spikes. It attracts hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies. Drought-tolerant and evergreen in moderate climates, it serves as a versatile border plant or adds a splash of color in containers. As a companion plant, it deters pests and attracts pollinators, making it an invaluable addition to veggie beds.
