(Salvia officinalis ‘Tricolour’)

Height/spread: 70cm x 70cm 

Flowers: Mauve – blue flowers in summer

Sun/shade: Warm and sunny position

Soil: Very well drained (add grit to be sure) and acid free. 

Maintenance: Sage is half-hardy and like the other sages n but may be lost if it’s too wet/overwatered.  Clip back in spring to prevent it going woody.

Harvesting: This is an evergreen plant, so leaves can be picked all year.

Cooking uses:  The leaves of Tricolour sage have a milder taste compared to the Green Sage.  Leaves are great to use with red meats and poultry, especially in roasts and stews.  Also great to use for stuffing’s.  Immerse sage leave in hot water quickly before cooking, to bring the oils to the surface.

Medicinal uses: Sage is known to have antiseptic qualities and is also said to be a good decongestant for colds.
