Luscious Lipped Sage

Luscious Lipped Sage

This Luscious Lip Sage was found growing abundantly near the Sacred Crystal Caves. It is an aromatic hardy shrub which flowers over a long period of time. It grows not far from the sea and is often a common constituent of the vegetation on coastal sand dunes. It is found along the shores of South Africa.

Brown sage makes an excellent tea for coughs, colds, bronchitis and female ailments (pour 1 cup of boiling water over a short (7 cm) sprig of leaves, stand for 5 minutes then strain and drink sweetened with honey. The leaves are lovely for use in potpourri as they retain their shape, colour and much of their fragrance, and mix well with other ingredients.

This is an excellent choice for coastal gardens, as it prefers light, well-drained soil and full sun, tolerates strong winds, and is drought resistant
