Boasting slightly fuzzy grey-green leaves variated in shades of creamy white and often tinged with purply pink, Salvia Officinalis Tricolour provides year-round interest in the garden. In summer, upright spikes produces terminal racemes of small blue-purple flowers that are a magnet for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
Tricolour sage is a popular culinary herb and the aromatic leaves are often used in Italian dishes, stews and stuffings. It complements meat and poultry dishes and makes a delightful garnish for soups.
Sage thrives in a sunny spot in light, well-draining soil. It is drought tolerant and doesn’t cope well with soggy soil conditions. Consider growing tricolour sage in pots or herb planters if the garden soil is too heavy. This is a low maintenance herb plant that largely takes care of itself.
