Dense and colorful, this plant demands attention with its large, long-lasting, dark-veined floral bracts in shades of pink, purple, and white. This prolific beauty is splendid as a dried flower or a filler in fresh arrangements. Although its leaves are entirely green, its name comes from its white and blue flowers set off by large pink-to-purple bracts. The leaves are aromatic and have a variety of edible uses.
Easily air-dried, it will remain very colorful, flowering until frost if old blooms are removed. 18" stalks. Needs well-drained soil. Reseeding annual perennial in warmer climates.
Other Names: Clary sage, Salvia comosa, Salvia dolichorrhiza, Salvia horminum, Sclarea viridis, Marble Arch
