purple sage seeds

purple sage seeds

Deciduous woody perennial growing to 6 feet unless seriously pruned back, native to Baja, coastal California and associated transverse mountain ranges. Silvery foliage with purple flowers occurring in whorls, with protruding stamens, very showy as the Salvias tend to be. Incredibly drought tolerant–a good subject for xeroscaping. Traditional usage (American Indian, TWM): drying to secretions (fsweat, breast milk) and stimulating to memory, expectorant, smudge. Plant prefers fast-draining, dryish soils and full sun. Sow in spring. Scarify seed lightly on fine grit sandpaper, barely cover seeds with fast-draining mix and tamp securely, keep evenly moist and warm until germination. Work up in pots and transplant out to 2 to 3 feet apart.

Purple Sage

Purple Sage (Salvia leucophylla), also referred to as San Luis Purple Sage or Gray Sage, is another Southern California native we have begun domesticating on our farm. A proud shrub that’s useful for xeriscaping (low irrigating landscaping) – it can encompass a six to 10 square foot area by its third year. Silver grey leaves and prodigious flower plumes – showier than any sage we offer in our catalog – make a nice accent for flower bouquets and can even be used decoratively in their dried seed pod stage. The entire plant has a soft, pine-mint scent that is detectable anywhere it grows.

First year foliage; second year flowers. Perennial.
