About Tricolor Sage Plants

Tricolor sage (Salvia officinalis ‘Tricolor’) is a beautiful and fragrant herb that can be grown in your garden or in containers. Its striking foliage features green, cream, and purple hues, making it an excellent choice for both ornamental and culinary purposes.

This lovely herb has highly decorative foliage, making it ideal for use as a garden border or in container gardens.
Besides its eye-catching foliage, this herb has a variety of uses in the kitchen and beyond. Its leaves can be used to add a unique flavor to dishes, such as poultry and stuffing. One of its key benefits is its ability to attract beneficial insects, such as bees and butterflies, to the garden. Sage also has natural antimicrobial properties, which can help to protect other plants from disease.

How to Grow Tricolor Sage

Tricolor sage thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is a hardy perennial that can survive temperatures as low as 10°F (-12°C). In spring, it produces delicate blue-purple flowers that attract pollinators to your garden.

If you are growing Tricolor sage in a container, ensure it has enough drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.
You can use a standard potting mix or add some sand or perlite to improve drainage. Fertilize your sage with a balanced organic fertilizer every two to three weeks during the growing season. Prune your Tricolor sage regularly to promote bushier growth and prevent it from becoming too leggy. Cut back about one-third of the plant after it finishes blooming to encourage new growth. You can harvest the leaves regularly for culinary use.
