  • Common Name: Sage
  • Latin Name: Salvia officinalis
  • Family Name: Lamiaceae/Labiatae

As a member of the mint family, Sage is usually strongly scented and therefore not often attractive to tortoises. 

There are no known hazards to the culinary sage, Salvia officinalis (Common Sage, Garden Sage, Purple Sage). Sage can be offered in moderation, but because of the strong aroma and taste, your tortoise might not find it appetising.

See Salvia.

Can also be found growing in the wild.
