Culinary sage is a small perennial shrub native to the Mediterranean. Its grayish-green, textured leaves are highly aromatic and can be used fresh or dried in cooking and aromatherapy. This herb blooms in early summer, sending up spikes of lavender-blue flowers, which are edible and attractive to pollinators. Plant culinary sage in an herb or kitchen garden, where you can easily harvest the leaves as needed.
