Salvia officinalis ‘Icterina’

At the “Journées des Plantes de Chantilly”, Orticolario presents the installation “The Sage Temple”, a project by OLO creative farm.

A temple to celebrate the sacredness of Sage, a magical, purifying and divinatory plant.

The four guardian deities of the temple

The sages of Vigo Gerolamo are Ligurian, from birth to sale.
They grow under the Mediterranean sun without artificial heat and light.

Officinalis. The mother of all Sages is the queen of the table and the vegetable garden.

Purpurea. The most aromatic and the most colorful sage, with dark stems and brown leaves. Its scent, as well as its taste, are definitely balsamic, releasing a calming and relaxing aroma.

Tricolor. With rose-white and green leaves. The great chromatic variability makes this plant definitely sparkling and contemporary. Scent of earth: fresh and lively.

Icterina. With green-yellow leaves. This variety has a corporeal and rough texture like a cat’s tongue. The shandy leaf has a sweet and vaguely alcoholic perfume.
