A Book of Salvias: Sages for Every Garden

by Betsy Clebsch
Drawings by Carol D. Barner

The word salvia is derived from the Latin salvare, "to heal," and for centuries salvias, or sages, have been valued for their medicinal and culinary qualities. In recent years salvias have been rapidly growing in popularity, and no wonder, since these members of the mint family are so diverse in fragrance, bloom, habit, and color. And many are drought tolerant, an added bonus in these times of xeriscaping.

Betsy Clebsch is a noted amateur horticulturist. She has explored the wild to collect plants and seeds for her Northern California garden, where she has a salvia collection that may be the most diverse in the country. She has participated in many plant explorations and exchanges seed and rare plants with many botanical gardens.

This book has approx. 250 pp, 87 color photos, plus 9 color plates and 40 line drawings commissioned for the book, 6 x 9", hardcover, 0-88192-369-9.
