Sage, Tricolour
Sage, Tricolour

  • Price: $5.00

Plant Tricolour Sage in full sun and in a well-drained soil. Mix in compost to improve soil fertility. If the foliage fails to receive sufficient amounts of sunshine, there will be less purple in the tricoloured mix. Tricolour sage plants are drought-tolerant once established. Although Tricolour sage plants do put out violet-coloured blooms, they are often grown more for their variegated foliage. The older leaves on this herb tend to be green in the middle, with an irregular white margin; the younger leaves are purplish. It is cold-hardy down to the minus ten to zero degree range. (Ref: PFAF - see link).
