Broadleaf Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a popular shrubby perennial with broad silvery leaves and tiny lavender flowers. The leaves have a tempting aroma and savory flavor and were traditionally used as a poultry stuffing and meat seasoning. Sage is an essential addition to herb gardens, and is very nice for growing in pots on patios to allow for quick access to the flavorful leaves. Both the flowers and leaves can be added to potpourri, sachets, wreaths and floral arrangements.

Sage grows in the wild in the Mediterranean regions and Asia Minor. Its Latin name comes from the word "salvere," which means to save or heal; this herb traditionally symbolizes good health and long life. Roman cultures, considering sage a sacred plant, followed a special ceremony for its harvest. Of all the culinary herbs, sage is perhaps the one with the widest variety of medicinal uses.
