Salvia officinalis 'Tricolor'

  • Growing best in full sun, 'Tricolor' Sage requires good air circulation and well-drained soil.
  • 'Tricolor' Sage is both drought tolerant and deer resistant.

The leaves are green with pink, white and purple variegation. Small, thin and oval-shaped leaves are highly aromatic. Light blue flowers in summer. Very useful as an ornamental herb, but not as flavorful as the grey sages.

Interesting Notes:

Highly decorative foliage to use as a garden border or in container gardens. Easily mixes with flowering plants.
