Pineapple Sage is a hummingbird's delight! Herb gardening with this gorgeous plant grows profuse, bright red tubular flowers that hummingbirds cannot resist. The bruised leaves of Pineapple Sage give off a terrifically tropical scent--this wonderful aromatic herb gives your garden an added punch!
Adored by hummingbirds and butterflies, Pineapple Sage looks great as a background border, as it can grow to almost five feet tall. The scarlet red blooms look beautiful when paired with Rosemary, Lavender or Hyssop for a fragrant and colorful scene.
As a culinary herb, Pineapple Sage makes a wonderfully light sweet ingredient. The flowers look like Honeysuckle and are lovely in salads and fresh fruit dishes. The leaves lose their intensity when dried, but you can use them in teas or try freezing the fresh cuttings to preserve its flavor all winter long!
