About Golden Variegated Sage Plants

Enhance your garden with the captivating beauty and culinary versatility of Golden Variegated Sage. This herbaceous perennial, scientifically known as Salvia officinalis ‘Icterina,’ offers a unique appeal with its striking variegated foliage, resembling a yellow and green watercolor, this sage adds a touch of elegance to any landscape.

Golden Variegated Sage reaches heights of 18 inches and spreads 16 to 20 inches wide. Its compact size and upright habit make it an excellent choice for edging, ground cover, and small spaces. In early summer, this sage may produce two-lipped lavender-purple flowers, attracting pollinators, including butterflies, bees, and birds.

The leaves emit a fragrant aroma reminiscent of earthy musk and cloves, adding depth to a variety of recipes. Whether used fresh or dried, Golden Variegated Sage enhances the flavor of meats, soups, teas, and cocktails, making it a valuable addition to any kitchen.

Growing Golden Variegated Sage Plants

Cultivating Golden Variegated Sage is a breeze for both novice and seasoned gardeners alike. This herbaceous perennial thrives in zones 7 to 10 and prefers full sun but can tolerate partial sun. Plant in well-drained, average soils with good drainage to prevent waterlogging, as Golden Variegated Sage cannot withstand wet soils during the winter. Gardeners in cooler regions can bring the plant in over winter or take cuttings.

This sage plant is an ideal choice for mixed borders, container gardens, and rock gardens. With its moderate water needs and low fertilizer requirements, this sage is easy to maintain throughout the growing season. Its low-maintenance nature and resistance to deer make it a gardener’s favorite, while its edible leaves offer endless culinary possibilities. Feed with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring, and prune old foliage in spring to encourage new growth.
