I have forgotten the name of this herb:



It has fuzzy, silver leaves.

Is it a sage?

if you pinch off a leaf and rub it between your fingers you'll know if it is sage.

Sadly it is neither sage nor oregano. It wintered over in zone 8, and has gotten bigger. I know it's an old fashion herb, but I haven't had time to sit down with an old herb book and figure out which on it is...

I'm nnot sure it made it through our winter...no life when I last checked. I'm hoping it returns from the roots.
