In the Garden
Takes the heat well, but not humidity in South Texas and is considered an annual here for that reason. Prefers a well-drained rocky soil with low moisture. Does not like its roots wet.
Strong flavor does well in cooking, dried and medicinal herbs. A very oily sage, its musky, peppery aroma is great for culinary use. A beautiful sage to dry for bunches and arrangements.
