There are quite a few perennials that do well in the summer here in Louisiana, but none more so than sage. There are plenty of gorgeous sage plants available today for dramatic, consistent color all summer — and fall — long.

Also known as sage, sage (Salvia officinalis) is a common herb that most of us know for its delicious flavour. Another member of this group is rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus), another common herb. Both have fragrant foliage that is often used in cooking, and both have beautiful purple flowers. Some have white flowers.
