I don't know of one called savage but there is savory. Could that be it?

What would this plant be used for and do you know what it might look like?

Q. Zone for Lovage herb

Can I grow a lovage plant in Central America, specifically Belize? I don’t know what conditions it needs. I tried growing it in Florida, with limited success.

While this plant is hardy in Zones 4-8, with some success in Zone 9, Belize can exhibit very hot, humid conditions and growing lovage here may present problems. That's not to say you cannot grow it though. I would say give it a shot. You never know.

Q. perennial that looks just like celery

I have a tall perennial that looks just like celery, though it does not spread but gets slowly bigger. Can it be used in tomato drinks as a straw? The stalks are larger, like real celery.

I think your referring to Lovage.

Here is a link about this perennial herb. It is edible and the stems would make a great stir stick in a Bloody Mary!
