Meadow Sage Growing and Maintenance Tips

Best grown in a moist or dry, well-drained soil, in full sun. They are drought tolerant, once established. They may become floppy midsummer, particularly if they are grown in a rich soil and in too much shade. Consider supporting the flowers or shearing them back to the basal foliage.
