One of the essential border plants for a traditional and modern flower border alike. Spikes of tiny, violet-blue flowers above deep green, sage-like leaves for most of summer.
The word Salvia comes from salvere, to save. The Romans called culinary Sage "herba sacra", and it was also highly valued by the Chinese as it was thought to prolong life. The Greeks and the Romans thought it banished melancholy. The Chinese imported sage tea from western Europe at five times the price we paid for their tea.
Salvias like a warm, sunny position in Well-Drained soil.
