Berggarten Garden Sage

Salvia officinalis 'Berggarten'

Highly regarded for its culinary and medicinal uses, this semi-evergreen perennial grows to form a compact, shrubby mound of compellingly aromatic, soft gray-green leaves. Short and stocky stems carry spikes of two-lipped, lavender-blue summertime blooms, extremely attractive to pollinators and beneficial bugs. Handsome and useful in herb gardens, mixed borders, and containers.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
