Salvia 'Berggarten' is a German cultivar. It is one of the hardiest because it withstands frosts very well. It is a low growing and mound forming plant that grows quick. Also one of the few salvia that shoots up from the ground. It will flower rarely. In good seasons its leaves can grow big as nearly the size of my (small woman's) hand. For culinary use..dip the leaf in olive oil and put it very short in the oven or on the grill and use it crunched for seasoning your salad or on other dishes.

Great plant for filling in the herb garden. It spills over the edges of the flowerbeds nicely, but doesn't get lanky or flop like other sages. Nice in Thanksgiving dressing.
