Description

This selection of regular garden sage is higher in essential oil content making it more desirable for medicinal use. Sage has been used as both a mouthwash and a gargle to treat mouth and throat infections. It is a strong astringent, anti- bacterial and anti-fungal. Modern research now reflects the ancient world's association of sage with women's health and fertility. It has been used to treat digestive problems and diarrhea and is a great help in drying up milk during weaning. Chinese women use sage hair rinse to avoid having their hair turn gray and it is a great seasoning for poultry and soups in the kitchen. This variety is very pretty with velvety leaves and showy purple flowers. Perennial. Hardy to zone 5.

Latin Name Salvia officinalis
