Leaves are a common culinary herb and it has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant. Tricolor sage has beautiful leaves in pruple, greena and white. Use as common sage.


Leaves are eaten fresh, or dried, raw or cooked. The strongly aromatic leaves are added to savoury dishes. The flowers can also be sprinkled on salads to add colour and fragrance. Makes an aromatic herb tea.
Sage has a long history as an effective and important medicinal herb. Good for digestive complaints, and being antiseptic, it is useful as a gargle. Taken internally for the treatment of excessive lactation, night sweats, excessive salivation, profuse perspiration, anxiety, depression, female sterility and menopausal problems. It can also be used externally for sores, bites, stings, burns. Use only for short periods, in small doses as a medicine, under supervision from a healthcare provider.
