Pineapple Sage

Do the leaves of a pineapple sage smell like pineapple or just the flowers. I just purchased two pineapple sage plants and the leaves do not have a pineapple smell.

The leaves have just a slight pineapple scent, sometimes only after significant crushing with the fingers.

Thanks, so maybe I am going to have to wait for it to bloom to know for sure if I have a pineapple sage. When I crushed some of the leaves I could definitely smell the sage.

RE: Pineapple Sage

The leaves will smell stronger as the plants gets bigger, but it's the crushed leaves that have the scent.

RE: Pineapple Sage

Thanks Westelle, maybe there is hope that mine plants are pineapple sage. Right now they are about 6" tall.

RE: Pineapple Sage

The scent may get stronger in cooler weather.
