Clary Sage, like all other varieties of sage, is a member if the mint family. This lovely biennial/ perennial grows to a height of 3 feet flowering July - August. With its square-shape stem, large downy leaves and dragon-like pinkish-lilac colored flowers, this plant is as lovely to look at as it is to smell. Due to these varied uses, Clary Sage is revered for its ability to thrive in a multitude of environments. This biennial/perennial has been widely distributed to many countries.
