Pineapple sage grows naturally in oak and pine scrub forests at elevations from 8,000-10,000 ft in Mexico and Guatemala.
Pineapple sage is rarely grown from seed. Tip cuttings taken in spring are easy to start.
The fresh leaves of pineapple sage are used in fruit salads and drinks. Crush a few fragrant leaves into hot or iced tea for a flavorful treat. The delicious flowers add color and flavor to salads and deserts.
