Plant requirements

This plant has no description yet.

Maintenance

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

Practical use

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 stuffings. Immerse sage leave in hot water quickly before cooking, to bring the oils to the surface.

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