Is Teucrium a type of Sage!? Only has have plants at nursery, conflicting names Sage and Teucrium but are identical!

26 Nov, 2009


No, its not Nicky - Sage is Salvia, and can be used in cooking - Teucrium was only ever a medicinal herb, not used for culinary purposes at all.

O well I had better inform the nursery! Although I knew Sage is Salvia, it still said 'Curly Sage' under Teucrium on label which put doubt into my mind.
Suppose thats difference between Botanical names and common name

Both salvia and teucrium are Labiatea though, so at a stretch, you could, maybe, suggest it was a kind of sage - but I think its a bit confusing, in case people want to use it in cooking!
