But to actually pick them and use them I have to be quick.
They get cut down so fast for the "neat" look of the grass, or for silage food in preparation for the winter.
This one is:
Salvia pratensis (Meadow Sage; in German: Wiesensalbei )
|This plant is about 75cm high!!|
|Same plant - closer look at the leaves|
I took this photo of a wild growing one at the train station. It can be used for flavoring food like with the
Salvia officinalis (Garden Sage - the leaves have a grey touch to them; in German: Echter Salbei).
This also gets used for infections in the throat area - but should be used sparingly. Over-dosage is toxic.
Not to be mixed up with this plant:
|Sorry, don't know the name of this one -- maybe someone can tell me??!!|
Same color and size -- but different flowers (first red than turning to purple) and leaves growing all along the flower stem. The leaves of the Sage plant are on the ground.
