This strong-flavored herb comes not only in the traditional soft gray-green variety, but also in decorative forms with yellow-and-green, purple, or tricolored (gray, white, and purplish pink) foliage. All form dense bushes to 2 feet tall. ‘Berggarten’ is the first choice for culinary sage. It has round, grayish leaves, and doesn’t usually blossom like other sages. Start from seed or transplants; set plants 2 feet apart or thin seedlings to this distance.
