Sage
'Tricolor'

A gorgeous selection of Culinary Sage with lightly pebbled leaves in an intriguing and soothing blend of green, cream, pink and purple. Absolutely delightful with meat dishes, omelets, or any savory stew. Forming a small shrub 18” tall and 15” wide, this drought tolerant Mediterranean plant is the perfect companion to lower spreading herbs such as Oregano and Thyme. In Summer, usually once it’s a few years old, expect 6” tall spires of .5” purple flowers held in bright magenta bracts. A favorite of bees, butterflies, and hummers. Plant in fertile, well-drained soil – gardeners with clay are better off keeping it in a 5 gal. terracotta pot, where it will be very happy! Deer resistant.
