Salvia officinalis - Sage
Its Latin name is Salvare, "to be saved." The Romans cherished the herb known to them has herba sacra, used to cure snakebites, depression and sterility and to promote long life. Sage has always held a magical aura most likely stemming from its unique healing and curative properties that were not fully understood long ago. The story of the Four Thieves Vinegar tells of the virulent plague that swept through Toulouse. Four thieves roamed freely among the sick pilfering what they wanted without fear of becoming infected. When finally captured they were sentenced to death. They were offered their lives for the secret formula that spared them the evils of the plague. A solution of thyme, lavender, rosemary, and - most importantly sage, that had been infused in vinegar had been rubbed over their bodies before entering the homes of the ill.

Sage is among the best herbal choices for killing bacteria, but it is also amazing for culinary uses. Italian cooks have used it for centuries to add a flavorful and healthful kick to vegetable and meat dishes. Americans all know sage from our traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinners. What would the holiday be like without the pungent scent of sage stuffing wafting through the air making our mouths water for the feast to come?

Get to know Sage and grow this wonderful perennial herb in your garden. Not only is it very useful in many ways, but it is a beautifully decorative addition to your landscape and grows in many variations of color and scent. To your health!


Sage may be grown from seed but more easily from cuttings. Pinch a sturdy stem from a plant in mid-spring and push into moist soil in a shady spot of your garden. Keep soil moderately moist until roots develop.


Sages grow best in full sun in well-drained soil. They appreciate cooler weather and infrequent watering. Mulch well and prune hard in the spring to remove any dead wood and prolong the growth of new leaves.


There hundreds of varieties of Salvia, the most common being Salvia officinalis.

Common Sage (Salvia officinalis) has pointed grey-green velvety leaves with deep veining and a pungent aroma. Can grow to a height of 2 feet or more. Flowers in summer may be pink, purple or white. Varieties include Pineapple, Blue, Grape-scented, Tricolor, Golden Leaf and many more.


Leaves may be used fresh or dried. Mature leaves have the most essential oil content and are best for drying. Gather foliage when dry and bunch loosely together.  Hang in a cool dark location with good air circulation until dry. This will take about a week. Store dried leaves in an air tight container out of bright light.

Culinary sage refers to a small group of the genus Salvia. These are evergreen perennial subshrubs with woolly grayish leaves that add an earthy freshness to foods. Spikes of purple/blue flowers appear in mid-summer.

Latin Name: Salvia officinalis

Common Name: Common Sage, Garden Sage

Zone: 5 - 9

Sun Exposure: Generally Full Sun. Needs some shade in higher Zones.
Mature Size: 1 - 2' H, 2 -3' WBloom Period/Days to Harvest: Blooms mid-summer. May bloom first year depending on size and site.

Allow the plant to grow unharvested for the first year. Then leaves can be harvested at anytime, although they are consider at their best before or just after blooming.

Design Tips: Sage quickly becomes a small woody shrub that can need replacing every 3-4 years. Frequent harvesting and pruning helps to reinvigorate sage plants. While a sage plant is in its prime, it makes an attractive addition to both herb gardens and ornamental borders. The purple, golden and tri-color varieties work especially well as edgers.

Varieties: Common Salvia officinalis is excellent for use as a seasoning and is undemanding in the garden. For variety and attractiveness, try one of the following.

S.o. cv. Tricolor doesn't get as large as S. officinalis, but the variegation of its green, white and pink/purple leaves make it as much an ornamental as a culinary herb.

S.o. cv. Purpurescens has deep purple young leaves that mature to a burgundy

S.o. cv. Aurea is a compact grower with soft yellow leaves and purple flowers.

Uses: Sage leaves are a popular poultry and meat seasoning. They can be used both fresh and dried. Sage also makes a nice tea. The leaves and branches are often featured in crafts, like wreaths.

Cultural Requirements & Maintenance: Sage plants can be started from seed, root cuttings or transplants. Sage seed needs to be sown while fresh. It does not store well and even fresh, is not terribly reliable and is slow to establish. Root cuttings can propagated by layering (Laying the side branches down so that they are in contact with the soil.) Fortunately, reasonably priced, small sage plants can be found in most garden centers in the spring.

Sage prefers a warm, sunny location, although it does not enjoy extreme heat. It is not particular about soil, except that it be well-drained.

Pruning after flowering will keep plants attractive and prevent them from getting too woody and leggy. Fertilize in early spring.

Sage is very happy growing in containers. If you want to try growing sage indoors, you will need to provide strong, direct light.

Few pests bother sage. It is done in more by excess water, not enough light and lack of pruning.

Harvesting: Harvest lightly the first year, as the plant becomes established.Harvest individual leaves as needed. Leaves can also be dried and stored for future use

MAGICAK HERBS: SWEET FLAG (Acorus calamus) (Family: Araceae)
~~~Scott Appell

*Acorus calamus* is a hardy, rhizomatous, perennial, swamp or bog plant native to Europe and the United States. It is araceous, meaning that it belongs to the arum family (*Araceae*), and therefore is related to such familiar plants as calla lilies, philodendrons, and Jack-in-the-pulpits. Sweet flag bears spicy-scented, flattened, sword-shaped foliage that grows to two or three feet in length. The creeping rhizomes are covered with a brownish-red bark and creep over the surface of the soil.

Because of its pleasant smell, calamus was once considered a treading-herb; and was strewn upon the floors of churches and private houses to perfume the air when walked upon. This tradition is still practiced at Britain's Norfolk Cathedral on important festival days. Acorus has proven insect-repellent properties as well, and was oncew thought to fend off the plague. It has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb, and the active ingredients are asarone and beta-aserone. The rhizomes are considered to possess antispasmodic, gas-expelling (carminative), and worm-expelling (anthelmintic) properties. It was also used to treat epilepsy, chronic diarrhea, mental ailments, and kidney and heart ailments. American colonists employed it to treat colic.

Although sweet flag has long been employed in European witchcraft, its use in American Hoodoo is far more fascinating. In Louisiana and other southern states such as Alabama and Georgia, Voodoo, and its variant among black Americans, Hoodoo, is still widely practiced. Voodoo is the American interpretation of Haitian *vodou*. Hoodoo, on the ohter hand, is folkloric magic handed down through oral traditions and practiced primarily in New Orleans. They both share some similar attricutes, such as healing practices and strong Catholic roots, but they are not the same doctrine. Hoodoo uses Voodoo dolls, conjure bags (both *mojo* and *gris-gris*), potions, oils, incense, sachets, powders, floor washes, and herbs. In fact, the herbal inventory of Hoodoo comprises nearly two-hundred separate species. Part of the mystique of Hoodoo is the ability for a practitioner to conjure snakes, spiders, or other living creatures into the body of an enemy. Sweet flag is used to rid the body of these unwanted creatures - to do so, one must chew on a piece of the root and bathe in water containing potassium nitrate (salt-peter) for nine mornings.

Sweet flag prefers an aquatic lifestyle, and makes a wonderful herb for containers without drainage holes: jarjinieres, cachepots, soup tureens, buckets, basins, and pickle crocks. It requires a water depth of four to six inches and full Sun to succeed. It is cold resistent, and hardy to USDA Zone 3. It is a exuberant grower, and will need division every three or four years.
