Sage (Salvia officinalis) Sage is an incredibly popular perennial herb that is used in sauces, salted dishes, meats and eggs to bring out a complexity of flavour. A savoury herb that is notable among many holiday dishes, Sage is also an attractive plant in the garden. This herb is fantastic in attracting pollinators and is one of the favourites of hummingbirds, who drink from the purple lavender-esque flowers once they bloom. Easy to tend to, and will grow back fresh leaves after cutting, leaving you with plenty of stock for your spice cabinet.
