About Sage 'Pineapple'

Not only is sage a great addition to recipes, but it's also an attractive plant in the garden. In summer and early fall, sage produces tall stalks of blooms ('Pineapple' blooms are pink) that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It can grow 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, so give it ample room in the garden or harvest regularly to keep it small. In our region (USDA zone 7), sage is generally an annual plant, but long-lasting (until the frost in the fall, which is generally mid-November). Sage prefers dryer conditions. For best results, plant in full sun and in well-draining soil, like Pike Vegetable & Flower Soil. Water regularly for the first couple of months while the plant establishes its root; after that, sage is water-wise and only needs supplemental watering during extended dry spells. Fertilize monthly with Dr. Earth Homegrown organic fertilizer for tomatoes, vegetables, and herbs.
