White sage is an evergreen shrub native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.
It is a sacred plant to Native Americans and used to make smudge sticks in some of their common ceremonies.
Albeit a very slow growing plant, White Sage has many medicinal uses.
Consider adding this very useful plant to your herb garden with Herb Sage White seeds from David's Garden Seeds.
This evergreen perennial is a hardy plant with thick stems and bushy foliage. The leaves start out crinkly with a gray/green color and later on become smooth white.
They have oils and resins that release a strong aroma when rubbed. The two to five foot shrub has white to pale lavender flowers budding in summer.
White Sage prefers a well-drained soil, full sun, good air circulation, and no extra water. The plant attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
