Sage Garden Broadleaf Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Salvia officinalis

Item #6092

Perennial. Sage’s flavor is bold and assertive, and considered very valuable as a digestive aid to high-fat foods such as pork, wild game, and cheese. Often paired with stuffing, it also livens up vegetables, potatoes, soups, and stews. The plant has beautiful, edible purple‑blue flowers, and the gray‑green foliage provides an excellent contrast in the garden or containers. Deer resistant.
