Salvia officinalis is a woody sub-shrub that bears aromatic felty leaves used for centuries to impart a peppery, flavour to meats and stews and, unsurprisingly, an essential component of Sage and Onion stuffing. The other being onion? it is a valuable garden plant, tolerating any amount of drought and adding to a Mediterranean feel in a suitable planting scheme. Since the dawn of civilisation it has found a number of uses in herbal treatments such as antibiotic, antifungal, astringent, antispasmodic to name a few. More recently its use for treating Alzheimer?s disease is being investigated. A plant that deserves respect!
