Clary Sage is a biennial or short-lived perennial flower grown for its medicinal properties and as a pollinator attractor. Bees love it. The essential oil derived from the plant is commonly used in aromatherapy and as a flavoring for wines and liqueurs. The name likely derived from its former name, "clear-eye," for its former use: the moistened seeds have a mucilagenous coat (like its cousins chia and basil) which can apparently adhere to foreign objects in the eye making them much easier to remove! This plant will self-seed in your garden if you let it.

Our seed was grown by EFN collaborator Andy Hahn in Colorado.
