Last year Will bought me sage seeds from a babushka at the market. I planted them, and they came up beautifully: thick, green, fuzzy little plants.
Then, this year they came back, MASSIVE! Could it really be sage?
The plants are pretty, but I was disappointed not to have sage for cooking. I looked all through our books, and searched the internet, and still couldn't figure out what my flowers were. Then, I wrote to the man who owns this beautiful website, and he identified it right away: clary sage!
