Sage Purple is a hardy, perennial herb that is native to the Mediterranean. It has velvety, purple-gray leaves and small, purplish-blue flowers that are attractive to bees and other pollinators.
Sage Purple has a strong, pungent aroma and a slightly bitter, earthy flavor that adds depth to a variety of dishes, including soups, stews, and stuffings. It is also a popular ingredient in many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines.
To grow Sage Purple, be sure to plant it in a location that receives plenty of sunlight. Sage prefers well-draining soil, so be sure to plant it in a location that does not retain water. Water the plant regularly, but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to root rot.
Sage Purple is a low-maintenance herb that can tolerate a range of temperatures. It will benefit from a layer of mulch to help keep the soil moist and cool during the hot summer months. Fertilize the plant with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer once a month to help promote healthy growth.
In addition to its culinary uses, Sage Purple is also known for its medicinal properties and has been used for centuries to aid in digestion and as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments. With proper care, your Sage Purple plant will thrive and provide fresh, flavorful herbs for years.
