An excellent culinary sage in that it rarely blooms, thereby providing an abundance of leaves continuously. Very low growing, dense, compact habit with large, round leaves. Large, aromatic leaves provide flavor in stuffing, sauces and seasoning mixes. It can be used as an ornamental, culinary, and medicinal. Great plant for filling in the herb garden. It spills over the edges of the flowerbeds nicely, but doesnt get lanky or flop like other sages. Nice in Thanksgiving dressing. Thrives in fertile, well-drained locations. Use leaves fresh, or dry and keep in an airtight container. Flowers are lavender-purple. Great bedding or container plant.
