(Salvia officinalis ‘Purpurascens’)

This sage is similar to the Green Sage, with the added bonus of having attractive purple leaves which look great in the garden as well as on your plate!

Height/spread: 70cm x 70cm 

Flowers: Mauve – blue flowers in summer

Sun/shade: Warm and sunny position

Soil: Very well drained (add grit to be sure) and acid free. 

Maintenance: Sage is hardy, but may be lost if it’s too wet/overwatered.  Clip back in spring to prevent it going woody.

Harvesting: This is an evergreen plant, so leaves can be picked all year.

Cooking uses:  Leaves are great to use with red meats and poultry, especially in roasts and stews.  Also great to use for stuffing’s.  Immerse sage leave in hot water quickly before cooking, to bring the oils to the surface. Sage is known to have antiseptic qualities and is also said to be a good decongestant for colds
