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.  The smoke purifies the surroundings–it is good to smudge the sickroom or to smudge after intense human  interactions, and of course before and during prayer sessions.  Plants grow quickly during the summer and may be trimmed back in the fall, after flowering is complete.  The beautiful white foliage of this indigenous plant sets off the silver-blue flowering spikes. This is the most highly valued and revered of all North American Sages, burned ceremonially to cleanse the spirit and welcome positive thoughts. Foliage is light green to white when the plant is young, and turns very white as the plant matures, and especially after drying the leaves. The characteristic perfume of this plant is sweet and penetrating. Cut the leafy wands in the fall, semi-dry them, then tie into bundles for use during the winter.  Scarify seeds on fine grit sandpaper, sow seeds in very sandy soil, barely cover, tamp well, keep warm and in strong light and water only once daily until germination. Our seed is from northern-hardy individuals and is a vigorous germinator–normal germ time 14 days in warm and light conditions. Winter survivability improves when the plant is surrounded by a deep mulch of sand at the crown–this keeps the crown warmer and drier. Winter survival also encouraged by planting on the south side of a building, where it gets reflected light and protection.  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.  Cut back in fall.

    Great seed!

    Maggie (verified owner)

    Great germination from seed. I followed the directions and included sand in my mix. I’m so excited to see them take off in the garden. We are in PA — is there anyway this plant will bloom for us? I’d live to see that. I typically grow this as an annual here.

  2. Question

    Annie Ryan (verified owner)

    I live in zone 7 and I’m trying to learn to garden. Would I want to wait until May to plant the white sage seeds outside? Also it sounds like white sage and st. john wort likes the same type soil. Do they make good companion plants or should I plant them away from each other.

      hi Annie, I personally have never tried direct-seeding white sage. I always plant it in deep sand in flats and put it in the greenhouse and/or under lights for fast germination. You can try planting it directly outside. It does like the same full sun and fast-draining habitat as SJW although they don’t occur together in the wild. richo

    Finally success!

    Lauren Maar (verified owner)

    I had ordered from other organic seed suppliers and that didn’t have any luck germinating white sage. Now I know the germination rate is low, but being in its native southern California that was really hopeful and was disappointed. UNTIL
    my strictly medicinal white sage seeds were germinating at 75%+ and are doing amazing. I’m planning on getting more!

      I’ve read the line “Its like nature saying, slow down, human, and notice the beauty!” A dozen times now. I work in a greenhouse and the last couple of weeks have been beyond crazy and stressful. People out in masses with no regards for anything or anyone. Not even the blooms. This was much needed. Thank you Richo for reminding people to slow down. The season brings many wonderful things.

      Hello Maggee,
      You can go to RICHO’S BLOG for a lot of info on growing and preparing white sage. Since you’re in one of the colder states, you might want to grow this as an annual, or even consider growing Artemisia ludoviciana instead of Salvia apiana. Or \better yet, buy white sage plants from us, they are already well-established.

      I’m surprised that nothing mentions smoking or treating the seeds with liquid smoke. Studies easily available show how dramatically smoke treatment improves germination rates to as much as 70% of what is usually a 10% rate.

      right, I used to recommend fire treatment of white sage seeds but got so many questions about it, had to remove from the website. The current seed lot we’re working with is giving high rates of germ without fire or smoke. Just press into surface of sandy medium and keep moist and in the light. I have had no complaints this year, the germ rates on white sage are variable and inscrutable.

      Western Mugwort (Artemisia ludoviciana) would be perennial for you. Many prefer true white sage (Salvia apiana), which you could grow as a summer annual. If you are going to order $50.00 of seeds, wait until tomorrow, because we’ll be giving away true white sage seeds.

    Mark Goldstein

    Hello, I live in the tropics, Costa Rica specifically…so easily a zone 11++…is there any chance I will have some luck growing this white sage? I live in tropical rainforest area, but we get little to to no rain between January and April..so my questions are: how long would I need to keep the plants in a relatively “dry and sunny are” to produce, and how much, if any, rain can they take? I’d really like to be able to produce my own and not have to import…thanks very much!

      Hello MArk,
      We have white sage listed up to zone 12, so you’re fine in a Z 11. Try situating the plant on the south side of a building, under the eaves to protect it from monsoons. It takes 6 months to grow the plant large enough to harvest.

      I have grown white sage in Costa Rica, (about 20 min north of San Jose in Santa Barbara). The seeds were from strictly medicinal and the plants seem to thrive, both in the greenhouse and planted outdoors in Rocky very well draining ground.

      Back in US now and just got a live plant shipped to me. Hoping I have the same success here

  11. Question

    Aly

    After searching endlessly with no luck, I came across your site. (Which does carry white sage) my question for you, after reading all of the questions and so forth, would be:
    As far as planting indoors, would it be wise enough to use just Upstate NY, (mind you I’m 15mins from Canada along lake Champlain- NOT 10 mins outside NYC or Albany) and would planting in Terra cotta pots suffice with some white pumice on top to start or should I leave the top bare when beginning for easier germination?

    As far as the “Fire Flashing”, you mentioned that leaving a layer of soil on top of the seeds when “flashing”, is this correct?
    Thanks on advance.

    I have ordered from places who say they have a high Gen rate and I’m left with now only 1 plant that took a “flash fire” process but I wasn’t present when it was done. I was at work.

      Hello Aly,
      Thanks for getting in touch. I did an experiment this summer with our newly harvested white sage seed where some of it was sown on the surface of sand, and some was sown under the surface. The surface-sown gave better results, so I do think that’s the answer to your question. Regardless of where you are, a good T-5 grow light will do more for you than a flash fire.

      Yes, growing the plant as an annual is a good option. Start early indoors, transplant out only after the ground is truly warmed up, and employ microsite technique–south side of a building or rock wall, very fast-draining soil. I grew one this way this year and it is now in gorgeous flower, with heavy branches to a height of 3 feet. r

      A gallon size pot filled with cactus mix, and the seeds sprinkled on the top, left in very warm and very light area, should produce some seedlings. You can work them up in successively larger pots in the usual manner and plant out to full sun and fast draining soil. Harvest is in the fall of the first year, and then again in the midspring of the second year. Partially dry the leaves and then bundle.

      Hi Eliza, You plant the seeds in sand and stimulate them with a flash-fire, then they come up through the ashes. not necessary, though, planting in sand with warmth and strong light will give ~20% germ within 10 days. If you need more info on fire treatment, check “The Medicinal Herb Grower.” r

      Hello J.D.,
      Unless you have benches and lights set up, then wait until spring to plant. And, regarding your other question about “Do you plant the whole packet? Or just one seed?” I am really glad you asked that. Most people who complain to me about zero germination are doing just that (they tell me so)–putting one seed in the middle of a pot–nobody who knows much about planting rare and recalcitrant botanicals plants that way, and it almost always ends in great disappointment–instead you plant the entire packet in the right conditions and then you achieve critical mass and good results occur.

      Hi Shellie,
      Well, White Sage belongs in the desert southwest (genecenter E. San Diego County) so success rates are good!

    Regarding “fire dependent” germination of white sage.  Several years ago we heard from white sage wild harvesters that seedlings of the plant were emerging after fire, so thus clued in, we tried building a fire on top of the flat after planting the seed, and sure enough, we did get good germination.  We also tried planting the seed by itself without the fire treatment, and we got germination doing that, too.  Over the course of several years, growing the plant and harvesting our own seed, we noticed a reduction in recalcitrance.  That is, the domesticated seeds were germinating at a higher rate and faster than the wild harvested seed.  So, given the high rates of germination we discontinued experimentation with fire treatment, and in fact I notice in the writeup above that there’s nothing about fire treatment in the planting instructions.  This is probably because a little information can be dangerous. (We had correspondence from people who literally charred the seed and then reported poor germination–this was not the kind of gentle fire treatment we had originally proposed, where in fact the seed was protected by a layer of soil between it and the flash fire.)  Recently (6 days ago, in fact) I took down a seeded raceme from the string we have stretched across the main beam of the seedhouse. There was an odd smell in the seedhouse, as someone was heating up some really smelly food.  I wanted to burn some white sage to clean up the vibes.  I stuck the end of the branch in a pot of soil and lit the branch with my lighter.  It went up in smoke, and seeds were popping out of the raceme and falling all over the cement floor.  So I swept them up and planted them.  It was the dark of the moon, more or less.  6 days later (today) the pot is full of new seedlings.  Now, that’s really fast germination for white sage seed, which usually takes (see above) 2 weeks to come up, not less than one week.  So we could say that the seed is STIMULATED by fire although it is not DEPENDENT on fire.  It is a good distinction to make, especially because some people like to play with fire and some people would rather not.  White sage is so giving, it serves BOTH kinds of people.  Richo

      Hi Cristina,
      White sage can be grown throughout the US. As an annual, the yield is not much. You could jump for a plant, that would get you there a lot faster.

      When starting seeds in Ohio should the pot be brought in during a rainstorm, or will it be alright? I know these are native to San Diego California, not sure how often it rains there. Thank you.

      Hello, The best approach is to plant seeds in sand and keep very warm and in intense light and water once daily. Rainstorms count for a watering. When done correctly, some results will show within a week or so.

      Hi Angela,
      Love Kentucky. You would have to prepare a desert bed on the south side of a building and work in lots of clay and white pumice and then surround the plants with more sand, a couple of inches worth at least.

      Hi, could I also have white sage to indoors or in a plant house protected from cold, as I live in Finland?

      Hello Karoliina,
      In a plant house, yes, in a pot that is very wide and not very deep, giving the plant also a chance to root into the gravel of the floor. Then, they can become magnificent.
