In its first year, clary sage (Salvia sclarea) produces a rosette of broad, hairy, aromatic, gray-green leaves. The next year, it sends up 3- to 4-foot-tall flowering stem, blooming through most of the summer with large, white to purple-tinged flowers over purplish pink to whitish bracts. The whole effect is quite showy! Clary sage is also popular with bees and butterflies. While the clumps usually die after flowering, you may be able to keep them going for another year or two by cutting off the flowering stems once most of the blooms are finished. Or, leave them on and allow the seeds to mature and drop so you can get lots of self-sown seedlings. Full sun. Biennial; Zones 5 to 9.
