Wood sage is an evergreen woodland plant which resembles sage but is not as scented, so is not particularly used in cooking. It has small yellowish flowers from July – September. The flowers can also last through to October, given a mild Autumn. This is great to add a touch of provide a late source of nectar. Although a woodland plant, it does not tolerate deep shade, so is preferable on the woodland edge or even on a shady border.
Birds love the plentiful seeds, and bees are attracted to the flowers early in the Autumn
Wood sage self seeds easily.
