So those foundlings grew HUGE last year in the patio window box.
I have a forelorn love relationship -- is best way to describe -- with them. I have had a plant and subsequent clones propagated from cuttings for several years now. They will die with first frost, and the tender perennial roots won't survive the winter here, so must be overwintered indoors.
So far, no matter the variable weather condition of the growing season, they will not start blooming until only a week is left until the first frost. I... and the remaining or southward bound passing hummingbirds get to enjoy the blossoms for just that week -- sometimes not even.
But by the end, I will have amassed a HUGE amount of blossoms as well as armload stalks of leaves.
I propagate cuttings from some of the sturdiest stalks, and dig up the mother plant(s) after severe top and root pruning to keep in the unheated garage. Sometimes they survive and other times not. I always have the cuttings to continue from. If you can bring the mother plant inside, then they will continue to bloom and grow in the house, though they will slow down in depth of the winter. Aphids and scales don't seem to bother it, but watch out for red spider mites and white flies.
Fresh pineapple sage leaves smell amazing when brushed/bruised, but not so much fresh in tea. Great in salads, curries, and pork/chicken dishes when chopped and sprinkled as fresh garnish. They smell heavenly after being dried and I use both flowers and leaves for night time herbal tea blend. I'm going to try making herbal jelly with it this year.
