Seeds: Endless culinary uses and easy to grow from seed. The name sage comes from the Latin verb salvere, meaning to heal. It is extremely easy to grow, and puts on a lot of growth in the first year. In the second year, it will delight you with beautiful purplish-pink flowers.
Specific: Salvia officinalis.
