    This golden-yellow variegated form of Sage keeps its shape and color beautifully in fall and winter. Superior growth and branching habits.

    • My sage may not be the exact one as this, but very similar and I was surprised it made it through last very cold winter and did fine in our very hot summer this year. It is evergreen on the south side of my zone 7 house. It only lacks flowers to be a top notch plant.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • Great foliage plant! Always looks clean & tidy, combines with any colour scheme. Beautifully echoes the foliage colour of Iris pallida. Still looks terrific in November. Did I mention it's dog proof around our pond?
