Sage, Dominican (Salvia dominica) potted plant, organic

(2 customer reviews)


Family:  Mint (Lamiacea)

Hardy to Zones 7 to 11

Woody perennial native to the Middle East.  One of the desired small sized sages, flowering from 2 to 3 feet. The plant is fuzzy and soft, bearing large flowers, white and yellow with lavender highlights. The entire plant, including leaf, stem and flowers, is redolent with the unique, fruity scent of sclaerol. In this way, it is more universally aromatic than Clary sage, which it distantly resembles.  Useful in perfumery, cosmetics and in the production of the rare essential oil. The plant thrives in our gardens, and even the seed of it seems charged with special energy.  This is one of the more worthwhile species we have brought to the temperate US, and we wish more people availed themselves of it, it is choice.  The original accession was from coastal Israel. Plant prefers full sun and fast-draining, sandy soil.  Very drought tolerant.  Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
