A.K.A. Jersey Sage, Honeydew Sage
A half-hardy perennial evergreen with a heady fragrance of Tangerine/Honeydew from the leaves. Has striking red/crimson flowers borne in late Summer into Winter.
Though a true Salvia, it is mostly used aromatically rather than in cooking . Though it can be used in fruit drinks, fruit salads, puddings, and, when combined with fruit, in stuffing recipes - particularly for Pork.
This is usually grown as a conservatory plant or stood outside during the summer months and brought in for the winter.
Likes full sun and good drainage during the summer, but also needs plenty of water!
