Common Sage Plants

Salvia officinalis

Common Sage is simply a smaller version of the species; a perfect ornamental herb as well as a culinary herb for herb gardening. Fresh or dried, Common Sage provides any dish with the solid and robust flavor of sage especially poultry, eggs, fish and breads.

A "sage" is a wise person and historically Sage has been thought to encourage memory and wisdom. This hardy variety, like other Sages, is a member of the Mint family and should be pruned back yearly to encourage healthier growth.

'Common' is a distinctive German cultivar of Salvia officinalis with a compact, dense habit and broad, gray-green rounded leaves. This gorgeous evergreen will thrive in full sun and prefers well drained soil. It is small and works well in the front of a border or container especially when mixed with contrasting colors.

Also available in our attractive hand thrown clay pot, our Potted Sage will add style to your naturally beautiful plants! Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the “mostest”, or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.

3 of 5 Review June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Peter Metsker from Grand Rapids, MI United States  
Just picked this to contact you, plants looked great when arrived and planted after 5 days, then we got hit with a really cold spell and basically anything that you think would die did.
