The Sage-Icterina Herb Plant is prized as much for its ornamental appearance as it is for its culinary value. Cheerful, golden, elliptical leaves are marbled haphazardly with leafy-green variegation. This variety produces minute lilac flowers and amazingly attracts birds, butterflies and hummingbirds. It is drought tolerant and deer don't care for it, so it would be great as one of your barrier plants, or plant right outside your doorway or under a window to allow its aromatic fragrance to permeate your home. It only grows up to 24 inches in height, so it would do well in a container garden.
