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 although it does get woody and die out a bit after three years or so." We grew this plant from 2000 to 2002.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Salvia officinalis 'Robert Grim'.
