Sage’s flavor is bold and assertive, and considered very valuable as a digestive aid to high-fat foods, such as pork, wild game, and cheese. Often paired with stuffing, it also livens up vegetables, potatoes, soups, and stews. This drought-tolerant plant also has edible, purple-blue flowers that attract pollinators, and the gray-green foliage provides an excellent contrast in the garden or containers. Perennial in USDA zones 4-8. Plants grow up to 18″-36″ tall and wide. Prefers full to partial sun exposure. Botanical Interests’® Broadleaf Sage Seeds are USDA Organic and verified by The Non-GMO Project.

What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
