Sage was an old healing plant, sacred to the Romans, and it remains an important culinary herb with a distinctive taste. But it is also a decorative evergreen shrub that deserves a place in flower borders, especially the slightly less hardy variegated forms. All kinds should be clipped annually to preserve their neat shape and encourage plenty of young foliage, which has the best flavour and colour. Older plants eventually become woody but are easily propagated from cuttings or by layering the naturally arching branches.

Really like having this plant on the allotment. The striking blue/ purple flowers attract the bees. Works well as a companion plant.
