Sage, Broadleaf
(Salvia officinalis)

You will love sage for a variety of reasons. Like all salvias, it has beautiful purple/blue edible flowers. The grey-green foliage is an excellent contrast for the garden. The flavor is assertive and useful in many dishes - particularly those high in fat, where it aids in digestion. Also good with carots, tomatoes, squash, corn and potatoes. Grows well in containers. One packet plants a 30-foot row.
