Tangerine sage plants are sturdy perennials that are both beautiful and quick to grow. This plant, which is also known as pineapple sage, comes from the mint family. Tangerine sage plants need to be planted in well drained, rich soil and does well in either sun or a little bit of shade. When planted, it is best to give the plant time released fertilizer and it should do well for the rest of the season.
- This is a good time to mention that although not as wildly invasive as many of its mint cousins, tangerine sage can be somewhat aggressive in certain conditions.
- Once the plants are established, they are relatively drought tolerant, but benefit from irrigation during dry weather.
- Plant tangerine sage in moderately rich, well-drained soil. Tangerine sage thrives in sunlight, but also tolerates partial shade.
“Highly ornamental and relatively speedy, growing tangerine sage couldn’t be easier, as long as you meet the plant’s basic growing conditions.”
