Grow pineapple sage (Salvia elegans) as an annual shrub in all but warmest zones. It flowers late in the season, but the red blossoms are worth the wait. They beckon hummingbirds heading south for the winter and also carry a lovely pineapple flavor. Leaves are flavorful, too, with tender young leaves packing the best aroma and taste. Use pineapple sage in water, lemonade, punch or tea.
