Sage is a hardy perennial with soft, grayish green leaves. Its flower colors vary; they can be purple, pink, blue, or white. Common sage is used most commonly for cooking; it's a classic in stuffing.
Common sage takes the form of a low shrub that can be wider than it is tall. The soft gray-green foliage is great in pots or the garden. Consider planting sage in a container with rosemary, basil, and other Mediterranean herbs for a fragrant mix.
While cooks appreciate the distinctive taste and scent of sage, gardeners also enjoy its velvety, evergreen foliage, and delicate blooms.

Root cuttings can propagated by layering. In fact, branches that touch the ground will often set down roots on their own. If this happens, you can separate the rooted section from the original plant and transplant it.
Fortunately, reasonably priced, small sage plants can be found in most garden centers in the spring. This is the easiest method to get an established plant quickly.
Sage prefers a warm, sunny location, although it does not enjoy extreme heat. It is not particular about soil, except that it be well-drained.
Pruning after flowering will keep plants attractive and prevent them from getting too woody and leggy.
Sage is very drought tolerant and does not like sitting in wet soil. The leaves will midlew if they are allowed to sit damp, so water infrequently.
The essential oils of herbs are strongest when they are grown in a lean soil. Go easy on the fertilizer. It's better to simply side dress with organic matter, in the spring.
Sage is very happy growing in containers. If you want to try growing sage indoors, you will need to provide strong, direct light.
The uses of sage are beyond measure.

- Besides its popular use as a culinary herb, sage is also commonly pressed into service in cosmetics, perfumes, and soaps.
- Some naturalists rub it on their skin as an insect repellent.
- Hanging dried leaves among woolen clothing deters moths.
- Burning sage removes unpleasant odors, such as lingering cigarette smoke or cooked fish smells.
- Sage has anti-microbial action, relaxes the stomach muscles and aids digestion. It contains anti-oxidants which reduces cancer risk.
