Wood Sage (Teucrium scorodonia)

Wood Sage has the familiar, slightly hairy leaves of our culinary herb, but if you rub the leaf it has very little scent.  Not much good for cooking then, but of great value to insects for pollen, and for birds, who relish the seeds in autumn.  Again a plant of dry soils, open meadows, woods and dunes, Wood Sage flowers from July to September.
