California White Sage Seeds
Salvia apiana
200+ Seeds

Also known as desert sage or sacred sage, this is an extremely pungent,
delicious White Sage native to the mountains of California.

Bushy plants with thick stems and dusty gray-green foliage are great for bee and wildlife forage.
 Great for smudging and blessing, Salvia apiana is prized for its strong aromatic qualities!
This perennial evergreen adds a wonderful "presence" to the garden! 
Your sage plant can grow up to 3 feet wide and will have summer flower stalks reaching 6'-7'!
California White Sage is a surprisingly adaptable plant.  It has been reported to handle temps down to 15 degrees and up to 115 degrees or more and is incredibly drought tolerant! For cooler climates you will want to winter the plant indoors.
It prefers full sun and well drained almost sandy soil.

For best results your seeds should be cold stratified in a refrigerator for 2-4 weeks. Plant seeds in flats or in pots in an appropriate planting soil. Seeds respond to light, so plant seeds at the soil surface or plant 1/8 to 1/4 in a well-drained soil mix. After planting, soak the soil thoroughly, and then water sparingly as needed making sure that the soil never completely dries out. Seeds germinate in 2-3 weeks at 20 to 30° C (68 to 86° F). Plant your seedlings into 2" or 4" pots after they grow 2-4 leaves beyond the cotyledons. Water as needed, but do not over water. Salvia apiana plants grow rapidly. they are usually ready to transplant outdoors in about 6 months.  Hardiness zones: 6-9.

The smudge sticks in the photo are just to show how the plant can be used and are NOT included.
If you would like to purchase smudge sticks or dried loose sage please visit my store :)

Sage is used like incense; its leaves are burned and will produce a wonderful fragrant smoke.
Medicinally used for skin washes and as a natural deodorant.
Mild tea made from the leaves have been used by natives as a general tonic.


 Also known as sacred sage, this Perennial shrub has been used for centuries.
The name Salvia derives from the Latin 'salveo', which means 'to heal'.
White sage is believed to cleanse a space of any evil spirits that may be present.
 In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it,
releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy.

Today many people still use the stems and leaves for smudging as part of purification ceremonies.


 
Please note that ALL of our sage is harvested with the utmost care.
We make sure that all of the plants that we harvest from are very well cared for.
 A properly harvested plant shows no signs of damage.
Unfortunately most other people who harvest California White Sage
 pick the plant from the bottom trying to get larger quantities of sage and basically kill the plant!
California White Sage is slowly becoming extinct so please ONLY buy your sage from sellers who respect this amazing plant!


Please visit my store for larger quantities.
