Ornamental sage, also known as steppe sage or grove sage, grows in gardens and also likes to be in open spaces. It grows up to 70 cm high and attracts everyone's attention with its violet to blue spike-shaped flowers. The question arises whether ornamental sage is poisonous or whether it can be used in a similar way to kitchen sage.

Ornamental sage is neither poisonous nor edible

Ornamental sage in the garden

The ornamental sage, bot. Salvia nemorosa, can be cultivated well in the garden. In the perennial border, its blue-violet flower spikes are an eye-catcher from June to September and are also very good for bees. Bumblebees and butterflies also suck their nectar here.

In contrast to common sage, ornamental sage cannot be used for medicinal purposes or in the kitchen. It is not edible, but not poisonous either.
