Food or landscape?

My sage plant is gorgeous. It stays green (ish—it really isn’t all that green anyway) all winter and I use it a lot in cooking (an added plus is that rabbits and squirrels don’t eat it). Currently I am making Tuscan bean soup (a lot of sage, garlic and giant white beans) and am anxiously awaiting the first steaming bowl of it. I went out to clip off a few branches and was shocked to see it. From the front it’s a glorious bush, from the back, not so much.

It’ll be gone by the new year but it’ll be back in the spring for more abuse.
