Who knew good old common sage (Salvia officinalis and cvs., USDA Hardiness Zones 5-8) could look this good? Besides being a must-have herb for cooks, sage also provides stunning flowers. Sage prefers full sun and sharply drained soil. This photo was taken in the garden of Michelle Gervais in New Milford, Connecticut.
