Sage has long been a favourite plant for gardens, planters and pots, and the Tricolor Sage (Salvia officinalis 'Tricolor') is especially favoured due to its strong, pleasant scent, its great flavour, and for its beautiful, white, pink and green foliage.
Tricolor Sage actually tastes identical to regular sage, so it can be used in cooking/baking in the exact same way - it's just fancier and prettier than its pure green cousins!
- While these delightful herbs would appreciate some outdoor sun, you should only keep them outside when all risk of frost is gone! Frost and cold will kill these plants.
- Sun sun sun! Most herbs love bright, direct sun, and this one is no exception! The more light this little herb receives, the better it will grow.
- Most herbs can't stand being completely dry, so try to keep their potting media evenly moist. If the plant isn't getting enough water, it will be sure to show you by browning, drooping and wilting
