Garden Sage is a true culinary sage as well as a versatile medicinal plant. It's a fairly hardy perennial member of the Mint Family, Lamiaceae. With its native roots in the Mediterranean region. Garden Sage has traveled and naturalized in many other parts of the world. Many new ornamental bi-color varieties have been made to suit the artistic needs of the avid gardener but this variety remains closest to it's origin and is usually a bit hardier for us here on the eastern front range of Northern Colorado.
