Description

Canary Island Sage.

Salvia canariensis.

Rarely found in cultivation, this is a large perennial evergreen shrub native to the Canary Islands.

It loves full sun conditions and is drought tolerant.

Traditionally, the leaves were used in tea by shepherds. It was used as a mouth wash, a tonsillitis treatment, to treat inflammation and fever, to reduce blood sugar and as a general tonic.

It is an analgesic, and contains antioxidants. It has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.

The leaves are beautifully fragrant and the purple / magenta flowers are stunning in spring through summer.
