Salvia scarea – Clary Sage
This is a choice white biennial cultivar. It has branched stems topped with a profusion of lilac-white blossoms and brilliant white bracts standing above the large, aromatic, mid-green leaves. Coping well in sun or light dappled shade, the blooms are a magnet for bees and butterflies.
