Broard Leaf Sage

The Garden Broadleaf Sage, "Salvia officinalis," will be loved for a variety of reasons. It features a strong unique flavor and aroma. Its beautiful purple-blue flowers are edible, in addition to adding wonderful contrast to the garden.

The foliage of this semi-woody shrub has a pebbly texture. Its young leaves are either eaten fresh in salads or cooked in breads, omelets, poultry stuffing, beans, cabbage and garlic. The Broad leaf Sage seeds should be planted in the spring in any well draining soil.
