Sage is a pretty tricky herb.  I think Clary sage is the variety that I usually grow.  I've tried bicolor sage before and it never makes it past midsummer.  I tried golden sage and it shared the miserable fate of the tricolor.  Silver sage was nice for a season.  It had a very distinctive foliage but I didn't have anything to do with it except for letting it look cool in the garden.  I need to harvest the sage at the end of the fall.  Cut the stalks down and harvest the dried leaves.  This spring there is a nice crop of new growth coming from the bottom of the plants.
