Giant Tequila Sage

Salvia gesneriflora

Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds orbit this giant beauty all day when in bloom. Deer don’t like the taste or scent, but we love this sage for its super-sized beauty and huge nectar-filled crimson edible flowers, which are delicious sprinkled on salads or desserts! Truly one of the great sages, loved by us and our customers alike. Another requisite sage for collectors.
