Salvia Care

Salvia is a hard-working, perennial herb. This plant is well known and appears regularly in gourmet magazines for its wonderful taste. Better known as sage, salvia has long stems bearing leaves, and tall stalks covered with flower buds. Salvias are very ornate flowering shrubs, and come in many varieties.

There are over eight hundred different kinds of known salvias, yet many of them will never become popular to gardeners, as some only grow in very tropical regions, and others have few leaves or sloppy form with almost non-existent flowers. There are many types of ornamental salvias, however, that are very common in gardens.

Salvia has also been used commonly for medicinal purposes. The Chinese valued it above tea for its healing properties. Sage tea is still used today as a remedy for sore throat and indigestion. Salvia is being examined now for the value of natural estrogen that it contains.
