Sage Clary

  • Botanical Name: Salvia sclarea

A large shrubby plant with pink flowers and purple-green bracts. The aromatic young leaves are used to flavour soups and meat stews. Used in Germany to give Rhine wine a muscatel flavour. Seeds, soaked in cold water, form a mucilage, which can be used to remove small particles from the eyes, hence its name, 'Clear Eye, or Clary. Add the dried chopped young leaves to potpourri. The bright olive green essential oil is an excellent fixative.

Matures 75 days from transplant.
