I normally pick up a tri-color sage, but found this golden variegated leaves stunning last season plus ecstatic that it survived my 4b MN winter. Recommend, great for foliage all season in dry sunny space. Will definitely use in containers as well next year.

Excellent for harmonizing flavors when roasting poultry, beef, lamb, pork and game. Fantastic with turkey!
Plant me with Tarragon, Thyme, Rosemary and Oregano for a fresh summer grilling garden.
Recipe idea: Stuff thickly cut pork chops with a few sage leaves and an apple wedge. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg, pepper and onion salt. Place in dish and cover with orange juice or cider. Cook until done.

I love this sage for mixed containers. It's easy to grow and keeps its form. The color is fabulous and it lasts well into fall.Kerry Michaels, Maine, United States, 10 years ago
