Salvia officinalis, commonly known as sage, is a perennial herb that is one of the main ingredients in poultry seasoning. Besides its culinary uses, the dried leaves can be placed in linen drawers to repel moths.
Salvia officinalis is beautiful in the flower garden. The blue-green leaves have a pebbly texture, and the tall wands of lavender flowers appear in early summer, attracting hummingbirds. It's shown here with Geum 'Mrs. Bradshaw'. Salvia officinalis is also known as Broadleaf Sage, Common Sage, Garden Sage, and Kitchen Sage. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 4-9.
