Plant Summary

The golden sage, Salvia aurea, is a hardy shrub with aromatic leaves and unusual flowers that vary in colour from yellow to brown. It attracts wildlife such as bees, moths, sunbirds and butterflies with its sweet nectar and clever pollination mechanism. It is also a medicinal plant that can be used to make tea for coughs, colds and bronchitis. It grows well in coastal areas, tolerating wind and drought, and prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It is a good choice for rockeries, shrub borders and wildlife gardens.
