Salvia officinalis 'Robert Grim' (Compact Sage) - This hardy small shrub with aromatic leaves and lavender flowers came to us from Betsy Clebsch. It is a selection of the herb sage that is low growing with smaller leaves and flowers prolifically through much of the spring and early summer. Good for cooking. Plant in full sun in a well draining soil. Robert Grim gardens in San Jose where he grows many forms of Salvia officinalis 'Robert Grim'. Betsy notes that this plant is "first rate as a garden plant althought it does get woody and die out a bit after three years or so." We grew this plant from 2000 to 2002.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Salvia 'Robert Grim'.
