Pineapple Sage Plants

Salvia elegans

Pineapple Sage is a hummingbird's delight! Herb gardening with this gorgeous plant grows profuse, bright red tubular flowers that hummingbirds cannot resist. The bruised leaves of Pineapple Sage give off a terrifically tropical scent--this wonderful aromatic herb gives your garden an added punch!

Adored by hummingbirds and butterflies, Pineapple Sage looks great as a background border, as it can grow to almost five feet tall. The scarlet red blooms look beautiful when paired with Rosemary, Lavender or Hyssop for a fragrant and colorful scene.

As a culinary herb, Pineapple Sage makes a wonderfully light sweet ingredient. The flowers look like Honeysuckle and are lovely in salads and fresh fruit dishes. The leaves lose their intensity when dried, but you can use them in teas or try freezing the fresh cuttings to preserve its flavor all winter long!

Smells Amazing June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Brittany Lewkowicz from West Mifflin, PA United States  
Arrived in excellent condition.  The plants smell amazing and I'm so excited to see it in bloom.  I live in zone 6b and even though I planted it out a bit too early, it's still doing well!

Love this plant! April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Karen Duarte from Knoxville, Tn United States  
We have planted this herb annually for years now.
Since we moved to Tn last year we had it in a pot and it attracted the hummingbirds! and butterflies.
Also I use the leaves in a dessert I make with yogurt, strawberries, pineapple and the leaves- yummy 7 cool on a summer evening!

Beautiful plant November 4, 2016
Reviewer: Mary Kay Parker from Halifax, PA United States  
I bought this plant a few year ago and every year since it ends up in my garden. The first year I planted it I was amazed at the color it brought to the garden in the fall. It smells wonderful and is so beautiful. I have had many compliments.

Pineapple Sage June 8, 2014
Reviewer: Richard Kangas from Peoria, IL United States  
All the plants I've ordered from the Exchange were in excellent shape.  It's a little early yet for blooming but they are growing fine and look healthy.  I bought them for the hummingbirds and am sure they won't be disappointed.
