We are trying to add color to our herb garden. What "non-green" herbs would you suggest?

Here are a few ideas for colorful herbs:

Basil -- 'Purple Ruffles' (purple foliage) and 'Armenian' (silvery green leaves that are tinged red)

Wormwood or artemisia -- Many different species with silvery-grey foliage)

Lavender -- Silvery green foliage with blue-purple flowers

You might also want to check out Richters Herbs ( They offer hundreds of specialty herbs, including many sages with different foliage colors, such as
golden sage, one of my favorites. It has greenish centers on leaves with yellow margins.
