Answer: Sage (Salvia officinalis) is often almost shrubby although it is called a perennial. In my experience, it is better to leave the plants alone until later in the spring when they are leafing out. Then you can trim away any bare portions that do not leaf out, and possibly give them a light trim to tidy them up. Avoid cutting into the harder woodier parts of the plant, however.
