Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a hardy perennial (in zones 5 to 9) that tastes aromatic and slightly bitter. It is easy to grow, only having three major requirements – plenty of sunshine, good drainage and good air circulation. Sage grows well in a variety of climates, and it can survive in temperatures as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit. It looks pleasant in the garden and grows pretty purple, pink, blue or white flowers in summer. When harvested and dried, it can be used as a stuffing for poultry, rabbit, pork, and baked fish, and can also be used in sausage or meat loaves. Learn how to grow sage so that you will always have some on hand.
