In the meantime, we should all know that the local garden center seems to have an infinite number of varieties of sage. But what exactly are sage plants? Are they all part of a desert landscape or sagebrush in a meadow?

Fortunately for us, there is much more to be said than what the eye sees. Some of them are spicy additives, such as fresh or dried herbs. They were used by tribal groups as part of traditional medicine. Many of them are excellent bait for butterflies or other pollinators, and they are a staple food in pollinator gardens.

Because of the diversity of this species, it is impossible to cover all forms of sage on one plant. So let’s start with the Botanical definition of the category: sage, of which there are many.

What is sage?

The genus Salvia is the largest in the Lamiaceae family. This plant family also includes mint and many other forms of culinary herbs, but sage species are superior to others.

But before you harvest this wild wormwood, you should know that there are many non-Sage plants called sage. Most of them are called wormwood one way or another, and most of these species are actually representatives of the genus Artemesia and are more closely related to wormwood.

So, what is Sage then? For the most part, it belongs exclusively to the genus Salvia, a collection of more than a thousand annual and perennial plants that range from herbaceous and stunted to tall shrubs. Some remain compact and small; other varieties grow massively, the plant can grow up to eight or nine feet tall and wide.

Not all sage is edible. Some varieties are purely decorative, but in general they pollinate gardens perfectly. If you need to encourage bees to pollinate other plants, adding one of these inedible remedies may help.

Most of us think of leaves that are roughly oval in shape with a dot, slightly thick, sometimes almost indistinct in appearance. It describes the most common culinary varieties of sage, but there is much more in these plants. They bloom in a variety of colors. Their leaves can be silver-gray, dark forest green or even purple or yellow. They are a great addition both as ornamental and culinary plants, and I can’t imagine why people don’t always want sage in their gardens!

Culinary Types Of Sage

The most famous sage is the so-called ordinary sage. Medicinal sage is a big part of what a local herbalist could start with.

But we are not limited to just this kind, so let’s look at a collection of culinary delights that will delight your taste buds, creating a bright and beautiful exposition in the garden!

Medicinal sage

Think about what you see as sage in the supermarket in a dish of fresh herbs, and you might think of ordinary sage, also called culinary sage or garden sage. It usually has a light green color, perhaps only with the palest silvery tinge in cool weather. When cut and dried, it looks almost indistinguishable from any other grass, and the powdery form has a faint greenish tint.

But did you know that sage leaves can be shiny golden, purple or dark green with a white border? In addition, your flowers can be edible and become an excellent side dish or color for a salad. Of the types of sage that we process, this kitchen herb is one of the most diverse at its best.

Dozens of varieties of medicinal sage are available. With all these different types of sage, it can be difficult to choose, but all these sage plants are widespread varieties:

  • Mountain garden: Produces spectacular swirls of lavender-blue flowers after spring.
  • Jaundice bicolor: the leaves are bicolor, with cream edges and silver-green centers.
  • Curly: as the name suggests, it has curly and wavy leaves.
  • Dwarf green: A tightly packed version of the type, sometimes called “Minimus”.
  • Golden Sage: a variety with golden leaves, also called “golden”.
  • A breeder friend: not blooming, he has red stems and medium-green vertical leaves.
  • Holt’s mammoth: Very similar to the basic Salvia officinalis, but with giant leaves.
  • Pink flower: Also called “pink”, this variety gives pink flowers instead of lavender-blue.
  • Purple: Also called “purple” or “purple sage”, with shiny purple leaves.
  • Tricolor sage: its leaves are colored in gray-green, white and purple-pink colors and look great.
  • Bordered with white: the dark green middle of the leaf with strong white edges, very beautiful.
  • Window box: Remains less than a foot high, but works well as a container installation.

There are also several notable subspecies. Of these, the most important to me is Salvia officinalis ssp. lavandulifolia, commonly known as Spanish sage. This subspecies has a much sweeter taste than most of the varieties mentioned above, and typical Salvia officinalis lacks camphor notes.

Elegant sage

Most people know this as pineapple sage. Like medicinal, this type of sage has a number of varieties, the popularity of which has increased. In most matters, they are known for their fruity aroma and a hint of citrus flavor.

Some have colored foliage. Others have unique and impressive edible flowers. All of them are breathtaking and unusual compared to what can be found in a Mega-store.

Here are some of the different types of sage from the Salvia elegans cultivar collection:

  • Red Elk from Sonora: it has the scent of pineapple, but bright scarlet flowers.
  • Frida Dixon: salmon-pink flowers after the fall make this variety popular.
  • Golden Delicious: purple flowers on light golden foliage, very noticeable.
  • Honey from melon: tubular scarlet flowers and sweet tangerine aroma.
  • Pineapple: Medium red flowers and pineapple flavor and taste in the leaves.

Melissa sage

Grape-scented sage, sometimes called grape sage, is a lesser-known teapot. Its leaves and flowers are used in teas as sparks with an unusual taste. The flowers themselves have the aroma of freesia and can be used as an edible filling.

Fruit sage

In most matters, if you walk down the aisle at the grocery store looking for sage, you will find it. Greek sage is the most common form of dried culinary sage for sale. As you can imagine, this can be confusing to people because your garden sage never tastes the same as in the store. But now we can dispel this confusion!

Young or tender strike leaves are used to flavor food and, like its sister sage Melissordora, are used in the preparation of tea. Greek sage is popular abroad as Faskomilo tea.

Sage gesneriflora

Of course, you can eat grapefruit sage leaves if you want; they are very similar to other culinary ways. But where it stands out is in its colors. These big juicy flowers are full of sweet nectar. They not only attract pollinators, but also break right off the plant and fall into the mouth!
