Wood sage. Distinctive foliage makes this a perennial you’ll never forget. Small yellow-green leaves are crimped or “crisped” along the margins and marked with tiny white speckles. In cold winters, the foliage takes on a purple cast. Less showy, cream-colored flowers appear in summer to top this 3’ spreading perennial. Some say the plant has a faint garlic aroma to it, and brewers have used its leaves as a substitute for hops. Hardy to 0F. Europe.
Common name synonym: Sage-leaved germander
