Sage Salvia Officinalis is a small perennial evergreen subshrub, with woody stems, grayish leaves, and blue to purplish flowers. It is native to the Mediterrainean region and commonly grown as a kitchen and medicinal herb or as an ornamental garden plant. The stem is green at first, then becomes woody in its second year. Flowers are blue, lilac or white, with two lips, and borne in erect axillary racemes. The intensely aromatic, thick, wooly leaves have a lemony, slightly bitter fragrance, reminiscent of rosemary.

Sage Salvia Officinalis is an excellent ground cover for edging sidewalks or garden pathways where its attractive foliage and flowers can be appreciated. All of the common cultivars of garden sage make beautiful accents in borders and rock gardens. Sage often is grown in containers for ornamental and culinary use, and it is used extensively in the kitchen to add a unique flavor to salads, egg dishes, soups, stews, meats, and vegetables. It is used to flavor vinegars and tea. Sage is used as an ingredient in soaps, cosmetics and perfumes. Leaves can be strewn in bathwater and in rinsewater to enhance dark hair. Smeared on the skin, sage is a useful insect repellent. Dried leaves among clothes and linen will discourage moths.

The plant is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
