This delicious new pineapple sage comes from Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Garden. The new foliage emerges bright gold, then changes to green as it ages, providing vigor for this colorful salvia. In early fall, the clump of pineapple-scented foliage is topped with short, hummingbird-magnet flowers of red. The dramatic contrast of the yellow foliage and brilliant red flowers is a real screamer. In areas with very hot summers, all-day sun may crisp the leaf edges, so afternoon shade may be helpful, depending on your climate.
