From the very beginning, we wanted to include Greek Sage in our collection.

The name of the species, Salvia, comes from the Latin verb “salvare”, which means to save lives.

The plant has been known since antiquity and our ancestors used it as a panacea (particular reference has been made by Dioscorides, Aetius, Hippocrates and Galeno).

Sage is a perennial shrub with numerous branches. Its height reaches 60 cm and its low part is woody. The upper surface of the leaves is coated with velvety hair. It prefers sunny areas and stony, barren soils.
