Clary Sage is a biennial plant native to the northern Mediterranean, as well as in selected areas in Central Asia and North Africa.
It has a long history as a medicinal herb, but is now widely cultivated for its essential oil.
These Organic Clary Sage Seedss will add a nice touch to your herb container garden, as the plant also produces gorgeous and aromatic blooms on its second year.
Both leaves and flowers of this plant are edible.
The leaves may be used as any common sage for soups, omelets, or as stuffing.
The edible flowers can be set aside for salads, or may be made into fragrant potpourris.
Although it takes two years for the blooms to appear, they are definitely worth the wait. The tubular shaped, lavender blooms feature a unique balsam-like scent and are able to change their appearance as they grow.
The leaves also bear a rich fragrance that will stimulate your senses in the absence of the flowers.
