Salvia Officinalis
Sage is a sister herb to rosemary, a small, perennial evergreen shrub that grows to approximately 60-90 centimetres. The shrub has a tendency to sprawl, and is identified by its grey-ish, oblong woolly leaves and purple-blue flowers that blossom in the summer. Like rosemary it is native to the Mediterranean and most popularly used for medicinal and culinary purposes. It has a powerful flavor that tends to dominate, slightly bitter with a hint of rosemary and pepper, and can be used fresh or dried.
