Now I can mull over garden plants from a safe distance .. meaning I'm not DRIVEN to actually do physical work .. just a few mental sparks to manage some posts ?
Mind you I did say FEW ?
Salvia officinalis covers a broad spectrum of these amazing herbal plants.
I can not imagine my garden without a few varieties .. perennial or annual ones .
A little off track is a quick comment on Pineapple Sage .. I just can't help it .. you HAVE to try it, to know that it truly does smell like pineapple !!
I still can't get over that .. and it grows LARGE .. a great filler plant that takes sun and dry soil .. so keep that under your hat for when you are stuck for such a plant : )
I find all sages pretty .. But I have a weak spot for Golden Sage or Salvia officinalis icterina and Purple Sage or salvia officinalis 'Purpurescens' .. and I keep mixing them together .. I'm sure it is part of a master plan but right now I am hovering over the "lets just mix them up for now" part?
Now how intriguing is the texture I ask you ! .. all goose-pimply right ?
Cat people ... does this remind you of your feline's tongue by any chance ;-)
Even with the hard frosts we have had the sages win hands down for looking beautiful against the odds ! Now make a note for next year and plants some SAGES !!!! ... P.S. have a look at this site that lists so many different sages .. Ornamental Salvia
