Purple Knockout Sage's attractive glossy oval leaves emerge light green in spring, turning deep purple in color with curious burgundy undersides on a plant with a low base above which the flowers rise. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous red in the fall. It features delicate spikes of burgundy flowers rising above the foliage from late spring to mid summer. The deep purple stems can be quite attractive.
