Neutral arthurb3 On Nov 25, 2012, arthurb3 from Raleigh, NC (Zone 7b) wrote:

This sage grows into a large open plant with very, very, fragrant leaves. A slight brush against the leaves releases a strong, almost unpleasant frangrance. The scent will stay on the clothing for hours. It blooms just before frost with a 5" by 3" flower head that looks misshapen when compaired to other sages. The plant is a good filller but neither the flowers or follage give it any special place in the garden.
