What is better than a plant that can hold its own and belong in both ornamental and culinary gardens? Not much in the garden world! Purple Sage Plant belongs in many different gardens from cottage to victory. This compact, shrubby perennial has gorgeous, textured, oblong leaves up to 4 inches long. Purple Sage has, you guessed it, beautiful purple leaves alongside grayish-green leaves. While the plant is grown for its colorful and flavorful foliage, Purple Sage Plant does produce beautiful flower spikes of blue in the summertime.  

Purple Sage Plant has incredibly aromatic leaves. Used in soups, stews, and garnishes, Purple Sage Plant releases an aroma when the leaves are chopped or distressed. Native to Southern California, this plant is drought resistant and easy to grow. Purple Sage Plant makes a great choice for herb gardens, mixed containers, and borders. It is possible to grow the plant indoors if provided adequate sunlight. 

Purple Sage Plant Care

Purple Sage Plant prefers full sun exposure ideally in loamy or clay soil with good drainage. Purple Sage Plant will tolerate a range of soil pHs from acid to alkaline. Be careful not to overwater this plant. If weather conditions are dry and hot, water about once a week, allowing the soil to dry completely between waterings. Purple sage is a light feeder and does not require regular fertilization. Add compost or granular fertilizer at the time of planting to give the plant a nutritional boost. 

Purple Sage Plant does not require heavy pruning. The plant can develop woody stems on older growth, which you can trim back by about one-third. Prune back the foliage in early spring to promote rejuvenating new growth. You do not need to regularly deadhead Purple Sage Plant since it does not flower often. 

Purple Sage Plant Spacing

Purple Sage Plant can grow to 32 inches tall and 36 inches wide. Space plants 28-32 inches apart for a mass planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
