Jefferson documented

This Mediterranean shrub has been grown in gardens since at least the thirteenth century. It was thought to prolong life, even "render men immortal." Sage was a standard item in gardens from colonial times, and was included by Jefferson in a list of “Objects for the garden this year" in 1794. The term Salvia comes from the Latin salveo meaning "I am well," a reference to its virtuous powers. In addition to being a useful culinary herb, Sage is an attractive ornamental dwarf shrub that attracts bees and butterflies, but is not favored by deer. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8
