Botanical Interests Organic Clary Sage
This spectacular biennial produces foliage the first year and flowers the second. The fountains of 3' tall dramatic flower stems with pale lilac 1" long tubular flowers and very prominent rose-red bracts appear in mid-summer and last through early fall. This beautiful plant has a unique balsam-like fragrance and has many herbal uses. The leaves can be used like regular sage in cooking or to make sachets and potpourri. Plants require full sun and well-drained soil. Do not over fertilize; too much fertilizer results in more leaves and fewer flowers.
When to plant outside: Sow directly outside in spring, after average last frost.
When to start inside: Not necessary.
Special Germination Instructions: Seed germinates quicker when it receives some light. Press seeds into soil surface and keep moist.
Contents: Salvia - sclarea

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
