Organic, Heirloom.

Sage’s flavor is bold and assertive, and considered very valuable as a digestive aid to high-fat foods, such as pork, wild game, and cheese. Often paired with stuffing, it also livens up vegetables, potatoes, soups, and stews. This drought-tolerant plant also has edible, purple-blue flowers that attract pollinators, and the gray-green foliage provides an excellent contrast in the garden or containers.

This 25 seed packet sows up to 16 feet.
