  2. Pineapple Sage makes a perfect companion for Knockout Roses. The blooms are the same shade of light crimson, believe it or not.

  3. good idea! i noticed knock out roses on sale two for one at the nursery today. now would be a great time to get one. (or 2.) i've never planted the golden variety of pineapple sage before this year. i hope it comes back for me. we're a little iffy with the hardiness for that.

  4. I'm going to ask a silly question. Does pineapple sage tastes or smell like pineapples. If not, then why call pineapple sage?
