Pineapple Sage with its amazing pineapple scent, and stunning red flowers is one of the most underused garden plants!

The bright green leaves of the Pineapple Sage, Salvia elegans, makes a great tea. This deciduous Sage is a magnet to attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds! This plant grows beautiful bright red tubular flowers that hummingbirds cannot resist.

Bruising a leaf or two of this wonderfully fragrant perennial when walking through the garden emits as much fragrance as lavender plants. A delightfully easy to grow garden plant as well as being a great addition to any garden or landscape for summer color and summer fragrance.

Use Pineapple Sage flowers of this aromatic, fruity herb in fruit salads or as garnish for summer drinks.

Mince a couple handfuls of Pineapple sage leaves to add in cream cheese for a fruity, cheesy spread, in raisin bread dough or steep the leaves in hot apple juice. The leaves also make for a nice winter tea when steeped in hot water. The fruity element of this perennial is lost in drying the leaves and/or flowers.


Plant in a sunny spot that gets some afternoon shade. This plant can grow up to 5ft tall so make sure to give it space to grow. When first planted, make sure to water several times a week which can be reduced to one time a week once established.
