Clary Sage Plants

Salvia sclarea

A valued medicinal, culinary and ornamental herb, Clary Sage makes a great companion to any garden.

Derived from the Ancient Roman word "claurus" meaning "clear", Clary Sage seeds were once used to remove harmful irritants from eyes by boiling them to create an eyewash. Due to its antispasmodic, antidepressant and estrogen enhancing properties it was also recommended in tea form to women suffering from menstrual and menopausal problems. Today Clary Sage is generally used to aid digestion and bloating.

Because Clary Sage can enhance drunkenness and create a more profound narcotic effect, it was once used to replace hops in beer to increase its potency.

The leaves of the Clary Sage can be used in salads, while the tops are used in soups, jellies and omelets to lend a sweet fragrant flavor.

Hope to work with it April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Karen Duarte from Knoxville, Tn, USA  
Last years Tri-color just didn't take off! so hoping this herb will. First looking for the blossoms for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and second, to dry for my poultry and soup recipes for the winter.
It is a very nice and healthy plant

Reviewer: Kathryn Oakes from Philadelphia, PA United States  
I planted this last year and it's coming up just beautiful. Can't wait to see the flowers and maybe use them and the leaves for tea.

I wish I had bought more!!! May 7, 2018
Reviewer: Joan Philip from Fayetteville, AR United States  
I planted this majestic beauty in my garden last year and then forgot about it. When it suddenly became a three foot rock star in my herb row, I had to look it up to find out what it was.  I cut it back in the fall, and I am hoping our mild NW Arkansas winter might coax it into being a perennial. This herb is a stunner!

yay clary sage! October 4, 2016
Reviewer: daniel briere from north scituate, RI United States  
I looked for this plant for a while and found seeds for sale but few reputable growers actually offering this old fashioned favorite. Arrived in amazing shape! Huge plant for the pot size, and has grown tremendously this spring. Already using leaves, and also propagated some cuttings, this is after a few short weeks of growth this spring
