Common Sage is a shrubby, perennial plant that grows to about 2-3 feet tall. Its foliage is grey-green with a pebbly texture. As it ages, it has a tendency to sprawl. The spikes of purple flowers appear in mid-summer. It also has excellent ornamental qualities. The plant has whorls of two-lipped, lavender-blue flowers in short, upright spikes in late spring. Wrinkled, grey-green leaves are strongly aromatic and are frequently used fresh or dried in cooking as a seasoning. It is attractive to bees and butterflies. It is a standard herb garden plant.
