Pineapple Sage

Every few years I plant a pineapple sage.   I love them.   They smell good and those flowers just make me happy.

I get one bloom in the spring when I plant and then the blasted things go quiet.    They grow and grow and get huge, but no more flowers, and then BAM in September, right before the first frosts, they start blooming big time.

And for a couple of weeks, it is covered with flowers and the hummingbirds feast and all is right with the herb garden.

  1. We had a lovely one that we brought in last, last winter. It was doing so well until it got scales. We had to trim it back twice and it finally died. I need to get another. I really like pineapple sage!
