There are annual and perennial sage plants, but here we will discuss the perennials. Sage, also known by the botanical name of Salvia, are long-blooming, deer resistant and easy to care for. Perhaps most importantly, they attract pollinators and hummingbirds. There is a wide selection of sages; most feature blue-ish green or grey-green foliage topped with tall, dramatic bloom spikes in the summer and/ or fall. Several varieties thrive in heat and drought conditions. Sages mix well with other perennials and stand out as a border plant.
