Answer: Culinary sage (Salvia officinalis) is generally used fresh or dried as a flavoring in stuffings for meat and poultry. It is also used in making herb vinegar and butter. The leaves probably wouldn't hold up well in dried arrangements. There are flowering salvias, such as Salvia farincea and Salvia clevelandii, that you can grow for dried bouquets.
Culinary sage is fairly drought tolerant but it will definitely benefit from adequate watering. It thrives in full sun in well drained soil. The plant does better if not planted in soil that is too fertile. Generally the plant grows to about 2 feet high and up to 3 feet across.
