Salvia - sage - produce lovely perennials that are a must have in the garden, once you have had one you will find that you come back for more. They have lovely whorls of flowers that have a very long flowering season and deadheading only encourages more. They bare green foliage that can be scented. We do suggest that in the winter you do trim them back and some varieties will need a mulch with either bark or compost. Another tip on the salvias is that they are known to taste good in food and they are also thought that they hold healing properties that will keep you feeling well and healthy.
