Purple sage

Sometimes it's hard to put into words why you like a plant: with some however, it's quite easy. I like purple sage for its individual green and purple colours, for the way these work together, and for the shape and, more especially the texture of its leaves. I particularly liked this display at Berrington Hall, Herefordshire, for the healthy, lush growth, something we have never quite achieved with the plant in our garden.
