 Salvia africana lutea
Family: Lamiaceae
Brown Salvia, Beach Salvia, Dune Salvia, Golden Salvia
Origin: South Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterUnusual colorYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Salvia africana-lutea is an aromatic, hardy shrub with unusually colored flowers borne over a long period. It is fairly fast-growing, up to 2 m and very attractive to wildlife.

Flowering begins in early spring, and the bright yellow flowers soon fade to rusty-orange and then reddish brown. After the petals fall, the saucer-like calyx, which becomes papery with age, remains as an added attraction. The flowers are both attractive and a curiosity. The flowers contain a lot of sweet nectar which attracts bees and moths, and acts as an essential food supply for sunbirds, particularly when proteas are not flowering. The flowers are complimented by greyish-green, aromatic foliage.

This is an excellent choice for coastal gardens, as it prefers light, well-drained soil and full sun, tolerates strong winds, and is drought resistant. It has been cultivated successfully further inland and upcountry, as it is capable of resprouting from its rootstock it recovers suitably from frost damage, but preferably try to find it a warm sheltered spot in the garden if you live in a frosty area.

For more prolific growth, water well and give it plenty of compost/mulch. Brown salvia is easily propagated by stem cuttings, or seed sown in spring.

Salvia argentea, Silver Sage, Silver Salvia, Hobbits Foot

Click to see full-size image Salvia argentea
Family: Lamiaceae
Silver Sage, Silver Salvia, Hobbits Foot
Origin: Mediterranean
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This biennial or short-lived perennial is grown for its massive, downy-silver rosettes of foliage. Plants want to flower in mid to late summer, but the clusters of white and green bracts are not outstanding, and, if allowed to develop, they cause the foliage to deteriorate badly. If flower stalks are allowed to remain on plant, eventually new leaves will form at the base, thus turning this biennial into a perennial.

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.

This showy Anise-scented Sage produces long spires of large, deep blue flowers from mid-summer to frost. It forms a tall bush up to 5 feet tall by 2 feet wide that is great for the back of the border. It is drought tolerant because of its unusual, moisture-conserving rhizomes. Plant height can be reduced by cutting back stems in late spring. Plants grown in protected locations with winter mulch may survive mild winters in USDA Zones 6-7. Salvias are some of the showiest plants for containers, annual borders, and mixed borders. The flowers are made up of two lips: the upper one forms a hood over whiskery stamens and the lower lip, which itself is wide and toothed. Butterflies and hummingbirds love them.

Chia was cultivated by the Aztec in pre-Columbian times, and was so valued that it was given as an annual tribute by the people to the rulers. It is still used in Mexico and Guatemala, with the seeds sometimes ground, while whole seed is used for nutritious drinks and as a food source. The word chia is derived from the Nahuatl word chian, meaning "oily". The present Mexican state of Chiapas received its name from the Nahuatl "chia water or river."

Chia seed may be eaten raw as a whole seed and is an excellent source of omega-3 and dietary fiber (both insoluble and soluble). Ground chia seed is sometimes added to pinole, a coarse flour made from toasted maize kernels. Chia seeds placed in water or fruit juice is consumed in Mexico and known as chia fresca. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.

Chia sprouts are used in a similar manner as alfalfa sprouts in salads, sandwiches and other dishes.
