Pineapple Sage with its amazing pineapple scent, and stunning red flowers is one of the most underused garden plants! The bright green leaves of the Pineapple Sage, Salvia elegans, make a great tea. Some of our customers say that it's great in chicken dishes as well. Pineapple Sage is a magnet to attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds! This plant grows beautiful bright red tubular flowers that hummingbirds cannot resist.
Bruising a leaf or two of the Pineapple Sage when walking through the garden emits as much fragrance as lavender plants. The Pineappel Sage is a delightfully easy garden plant to grow as well as being a great addition to any garden or landscape for summer color and summer fragrance.
Use the flowers of this aromatic, fruity herb in fruit salads or as garnish for summer drinks. Mince a couple handfuls of the Pineapple sage leaves to add in cream cheese for a fruity, cheesy spread, in raisin bread dough or steep the leaves in hot apple juice. The leaves also make for a nice winter tea when steeped in hot water. The fruity element of the Pineapple sage is lost in drying the leaves and/or flowers.
