Sage Purple, also known as Purple Sage, is a versatile herb with attractive purple foliage and a strong, earthy flavor that is perfect for a variety of dishes. It is a hardy perennial plant that can be grown year-round and is ideal for both novice and experienced gardeners.
Best Position: Sage Purple thrives in a sunny position with well-draining soil. It prefers a slightly alkaline soil, so consider adding lime or wood ash to the soil if it is too acidic. It can also be grown in a container with well-draining potting mix.
When to Plant: Sage Purple can be planted from seeds or cuttings in the spring or fall. For best results, start seeds indoors in early spring and transplant the seedlings outdoors after the last frost. Alternatively, cuttings can be taken from established plants in the fall and rooted indoors before transplanting outdoors.
Fruiting Time: Sage Purple typically blooms in the summer, producing attractive purple-blue flowers that are popular with pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Height and Spread: Sage Purple can grow up to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide, with a bushy habit that makes it ideal for use as a landscaping plant or as a decorative addition to a vegetable garden.
When to Feed: Sage Purple is a low-maintenance plant that does not require much feeding. However, it can benefit from a light application of organic fertilizer in the spring and summer to encourage healthy growth and blooming. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can result in poor growth and reduced flavor.
