Golden Delicious pineapple sage

Golden Delicious pineapple sage sounds, well, delicious. We aren’t talking fruit, but the most luscious sage on the planet.
Golden Delicious pineapple sage made its debut about 15 years ago and has steadily climbed in popularity, winning awards across the country. You’ll know why once you grow it. Merely brushing up against the leaves will leave you in a state of olfactory euphoria.
The fragrance of the leaves also constitutes the flavor for drinks, jams and cream cheese. To add to the wow factor is the plant’s golden chartreuse hue, the hottest color in the garden. Everything looks better partnered with Golden Delicious.
In the fall, it sends out brilliant red blossoms that bring both hummingbirds and butterflies.
