Your Herb Garden in November

Gardeners, the other glory of sage is that, because it is a perennial, it will, with a little help from you in the coldest days, stay lovely in your garden through the fall and winter. Its soft gray color and texture are a lovely foil for plants with stronger colors. 





And if you take advantage of these very beautiful cultivars, you can enjoy a rich tapestry of colors when the rest of your garden is asleep. Note, however, that the variegated types are somewhat less hardy than the common culinary sage, and will need some protection during the depths of winter. But aren’t they lovely.Purple sage. Golden sage. Tricolor sage. You can pick out each one from the photos here.
