Tangerine Sage (Eng.), Pynappelsalie (Afr.)
Pineapple salvia is a remarkable herbaceous perennial known for its fragrant, velvety, mid-green, triangular leaves that smell like tropical pineapples. The bright, red flowers grow on continuous flower stalks that are situated on the tips of each branch and reach 30 cm long. This plant is a must have in your herb garden as it brings the taste of the tropics to temperate gardens. Most of the plant is edible and can be used as a garnish, to flavour teas, iced drinks, salads and desserts.
