The Clary Sage, 'Salvia sclarca', is a truly spectacular plant with fountains of 3' tall flower stems. In addition to its numerous panicles of flowers, the entire plant releases a pleasant garden fragrance. The flowers are pale lilac, 1 inch long tubular blooms, with very prominent rose-red bracts on 2 to 3 foot tall square stems. The Clary Sage blooms in summer through early fall.Clary Sages prefer full sun and average garden soil. The soil must be well drained and not overly fertile. This Sage is a great plant for dry, rocky soils. Plant this easy-to-grow plant in the spring after the last average frost date. Clary Sage is used for tea, and the fresh or dried leaves are used the same way as sage. The leaves are also used to make sachets and potpourri.
