This one has it all! Looks, fragrance, taste, color...the list goes on. Golden Delicious Golden Leaved Pineapple Sage is the perfect accent plant in your landscape or large container garden. Its slightly hairy, chartreuse green foliage, red-tinged on new growth, is the focal point here. It is an herb with many culinary uses, too, as well as being a fragrant addition to your potpourri when dried. What is not to love about this?

Primarily grown as an annual in most regions of the United States, this Zone 9 to 11b perennial is native to Mexico and Guatemala where it grows as a small shrub in the higher elevations. Here in Zones 2-7 you can set it out after the danger of the last frost has passed. In warmer long season regions of the U.S. you may be gifted with the appearance of fiery red flowers reminiscent of lobelia.

Proven Accents Rockin' Golden Delicious Salvia Care

Plant pineapple sage in full sun although it will appreciate some light afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. It is heat and drought tolerant. It prefers a rich, well-draining humus soil, pH 5.5 to 6.2, that is evenly moist. Fertilize once in the season for landscape plantings, and on a regular 3 to 4 week regimen for container plants. It will retain its chartreuse lime green leaf color when planted in full sun, and will turn a darker green in shade.

Deadheading is not necessary as there is nothing to gain by doing so. Pinching back when first planted will encourage branching, but pineapple sage will take it from here, spreading out along the ground by underground roots and quickly filling your space. Container planting will help control this rampant growth and its lime green foliage compliments many rich dark foliage annuals as well as a plethora of bloom colors from other sun loving annuals.

Proven Accents Rockin' Golden Delicious Salvia Spacing

Proper spacing is crucial here given its tendency to spread. Growing up to 48 inches in one season, and spreading 24 to 36 inches wide, it will quickly take over a garden bed so be bold when planting it with other larger annuals that can hold their own, or consider mass planting the sage by itself. It tolerates deer browsing without much damage and is attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
