Sage, Italian (Salvia officinalis)
The soft gray-green leaves of sun-loving sage blend in nicely with other plants, and the pretty light purple flower sprays attract hummingbirds. Fresh sage has a warm, complex flavour that complements vegetables like onions, beans, tomatoes, and potatoes, as well as meats like pork, turkey, and sausage, and most cheese dishes in the kitchen.
