My Favorite Sages…

are Autumn Sage and Pineapple Sage. What you say we have a little chit chat about them.

Autumn’s botanical name is Salvia greggii and Pineapple’s is Salvia elegans. Both are in the mint family.

Both attract hummers and butterflies, grow well in sun to part shade, get about 4′ x 3′, and are in the mint family.

AS is hardy in zones 7-9, is drought tolerant, doesn’t like alot of fertilizer or water, and is a semi-evergreen perennial.

PS is hardy in zones 8-11, needs regular water, has edible leaves and flowers, has pineapple scented foliage (yep.  Pineapple scented foliage.  How cool is that!!), and can be a semi-evergreen perennial or an evergreen woody subshrub depending on how cold of an area you live in.

I have both in stock in 1-gallon containers for $3.99 each. Both are gorgeous, and I think you need them in your garden.
