Sage, White (Salvia apiana) potted plant, organic

(15 customer reviews)


Family:  Mint (Lamiacea)

Hardy to Zones 7 to 12, otherwise grown as a potted plant and protected from frost

(Sacred White Sage) Woody perennial native to California.  White sage prefers sandy soil in the full sun. Probably the most popular of all plants for smudging, the leaves dry down almost white and burn with an intense smoke.  Plants grow quickly during the summer and may be trimmed back in the fall, after flowering is complete.  White sage loves a dry, sunny exposure. Plant 2 to 3 feet apart. Rosette usually grows to 2 or 3 feet tall, and flowering spikes may reach 6 feet.  Regarding harvest:  If the plant is small and weak, do not cut it back.  If the plant is growing fast and has sized-up (more than a foot across and a couple of feet tall), then I find that the fronds can be cut back twice during the growing season, and that the plant will quickly replace those branches with new ones.  Finally, just prior to frost, it makes sense to cut the plant back quite significantly, creating a rounded form between 1 and 2 feet tall, which seems to improve winter hardiness.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
