Clary sage is also known as clear eye and see bright.
A beautiful, tall plant with strongly scented large wrinkly leaves and very pretty pale pink flowers and mauve bracts.
The flowers are very attractive to bees.
Clary sage is a biennial plant which means it will produce leaves in its first year and flower in the second. Biennials often die after flowering in their second year so allow the plant to set seed to produce plants in following years.
Clary Sage can attract / provide food for the following creatures:
- Violet Carpenter Bee
- Moths including Mint Moth 🐛
- An "RHS Plants for Pollinators" plant **
All our seed packets include sowing instructions.
