Pineapple Sage

Pineapple Sage in the flower garden that borders our house. This is our first year growing this type of sage, so far it seems easy to grow in our region (7).

It has grown pretty easily without much attention and a small unknown caterpillar species that is eating on our lemon basil just 12" away doesn't seem to be bothering the pineapple sage.

Our Pineapple Sage is growing in the ground, but it could also be planted in planters. Our plant grew to about 15" tall so it would seem to be a nice plant for a window planter.

The leaves are edible and smell wonderful. The leaves can be added to many dishes as a seasoning, fragrance or tea.

Common Name: Pineapple Sage
Scientific Name: Salvia elegans
