Description

Pineapple Sage is one of the most delightful herbs, true to its name and has striking, sweetly flavored red flowers that hummingbirds love. Those who know Sage as a spice used in stuffing will be shocked at the scent and flavor of this sweet herb. Pineapple Sage’s appearance is drastically different: it has pretty, bright red flowers and smooth light green leaves instead of the drab blooms and thick, textured foliage of Common Sage. Its value is threefold because not only is it ornamental, but it smells heavenly and tastes delicious. Rubbing the leaves releases the fruity odor. Boiled, they make a great tea which is well complemented by a little honey.
