Purple Sage – Salvia officinalis ‘Purpurascens’


Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Salvia officinalis ‘Purpurascens’. 1.1L coir pot.

Native to Southern Europe, this hardy perennial offers lovely purple leaves that can be used in cooking.

The younger, milder leaves are ideal for drinks. They can be used in tea and when gargled, can assist with a sore throat.

The plant enjoys a full sun position in free draining soil.

It’ll grow around 60cm high by 70cm wide and offers edible purple flowers in summer.
