Comments: A cultivar of the sage used and known by most cooks. Does well in average soils that are well drained and can not stand wet feet. It flowers in early spring in the deep south and blossoms dont come for several week when grown in zones 7 and higher. Where it grows tall it will need support to remain upright and this may not go well in the well maintained landscape.
