Hi All,

Usually I post over on the herbs forum. I'm hoping someone on the salvia forum can help me. Last year, Territorial Seeds carried plants of Salvia officinalis 'Curly'. They sold out before I could order. They are not carrying the plant this year. Does anyone know where I can get this variety of garden sage? Thanks.

It's new to me. With Salvia officinalis, I'm interested in finding a form that can tolerate southeastern US hot humid nights. Also dwarf, tidy forms that don't spread around too much.

I will try a local grower and check in with our local Herb society to see if anyone has seen this cultivar. What makes it different from other Salvia officinalis varieties?

Is this the one (scroll to the bottom of the link)? If so, you might try contacting the wholesaler (Log House Plants) to see where you can find it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Salvia officinalis (curly)

I have emailed Log House and haven't received an answer. I have also tried the websites of the nurseries on the West coast he mentions on the website. I'm on the East Coast.

Curly sage seems to have a lovely ruffled edge and a narrow leaf. Just something different! I currently have these varieties of Salvia officinalis: Dalmatian, Icteris, Purple, Nana, Tricolor, Sage of Bath, Golden-edge, Berggarten, Extrakata.

Hi Art. Thanks for looking. A sage from Israel? Well, I don't have that either. I will keep my eyes open for it!

Richard,
The sage cultivar that has been most tolerant of humidity for me in Northern Virginia has been 'Variegated Woodcote'. There is also the Israeli hybrid S. officinalis X fruiticosa 'Newe Ya Ar' that does well in southern climates. It goes by the common name of Silver Sage sometimes.

Newe Ya'ar does well in high humidity areas. I grew it in S.ALabama it is not "small and tidy" but it tastes great.
