Description

TRICOLOR SAGE (Salvia officinalis) is the same classic culinary herb used for flavoring meat, cheese and bean dishes as the green culinary variety, but with decorative variegated green and white foliage that is splashed deeply with purple. Grows to 24"H. I offered these last year at the Farmer's Market and they quickly sold out. Also used to prepare healing teas and in the fragrance industry.Evergreen. Full Sun. Perennial in zones 5-11. You will receive a live plant in a 4" pot.

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES: The name "Salvia" comes from the Latin "salvere," meaning "to heal." The Romans considered sage to be sacred and even had special harvesting ceremonies. All sages have traditionally been considered antispasmodic, antiseptic, astringent, diaphoretic, expectorant, nervine and tonic. Used as a folk remedy against colds, diarrhea, enteritis, venereal disease, excessive perspiration, snake bites, sore throats, toothaches and cancer. Recent clinical studies have shown it is useful lowering blood sugar in diabetics. Strongly flavored, so if brewing as a tea, try combining with dried fruits such as apple, or fragrant raspberry leaves. Combined with rosemary, and boiled to make a "tea", it can be used to restore gray hair to its natural color. Let the combo cool and steep in your refrigerator. After shampooing, use a cotton ball to apply to gray (or rinse if you are gray all over) and let dry. Use weekly. Restoration will take several weeks but it beats chemical hair colors, which can affect your health.

INSTRUCTIONS ON RECEIPT: Open immediately and give a drink of water, preferably filtered water. If using tap water, allow the water to “breathe” overnight before using to dissipate any chlorine which can be fatal to delicate organic seedlings. Put under grow light or near a natural light source, preferably without cold or drafts for at least a few days to settle down from its journey, keeping it moist but not waterlogged. If weather is not permissible you can hold your seedling for some time, potting up as necessary after a month. (Keep in its original pot for that long if you are not moving to the garden, as a new growing medium or too large a pot could cause failure.) If weather is permissible, begin your hardening off process of very gradual exposure to outside elements – 15 minutes at a time, graduating up to a full day by 15 minute to half hour increments. Watch carefully! If it is warm already in your growing zone, you can quickly lose transplants by rushing this process. Patience is rewarded with a vigorous transplant. When fully hardened off, situate to their permanent garden spot and let rest a day or two there, again, watching carefully for any sign of distress. Then, when you have a nice cloudy day in the offing, transplant into the garden, providing any support or cover required, giving a shot of organic fertilizer (I recommend Espoma). Keep watered, but not waterlogged. Keep a watchful eye on your baby.
