Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
This is a cross-section of the great variety of Sage species available worldwide. We feature species used in medicine, as well as some of the strikingly decorative ones. Planting in a sunny, dry and well-drained microsite will help assure survival through the winter. "Sage Set": Black, Clary, Dan Shen (S. miltiorrhiza), Garden, Lilac, Pitcher & White. These sages all prefer fast-draining soil in the full sun to part shade. The seeds are best sown in the spring, barely under the surface and kept warm and evenly moist until germination, which takes about a week. Each packet contains the individual microsite preferences for the species as well as more specific germination and planting advice. Enjoy your sages!
