Description of Pineapple Sage
You won’t find pineapples on this perennial shrub however, instead you will smell them! It has a strong pineapple fragrance that can be savored by being near the plant; rubbing the leaves will release more of the aromatic compounds thus intensifying the smell. Not only is this plant fragrant, it’s also edible and extremely fast growing.
The plant thrives in full sun and well draining soil. Be sure to plant it only where there is adequate room as they can grow into large bushes (sometimes over 5 feet tall). Occasional trimming may also be required if you find yourself with a wild, unruly plant.
The plant has beautiful red tubular flowers that are a favorite among hummingbirds.
