Organic Clary Sage Seeds


(B/4-5')(FS) Z5-9 An eyewash made from its mucilaginous seeds gave clary sage its name, meaning 'clear eye'. Also known as 'Muscatel Sage', it is exclusively grown commercially as the source of muscatel oil, used in flavoring and perfume. Clary wine was a 16th century aphrodisiac. The second year produces beautiful huge flower spikes of purplish white and rose, highly recommended in the garden as a background herb to add color and fragrance. The dried flowers are extremely aromatic and excellent for sachets and potpourris.
