Sage & Chia

Blue sage brush
This is the silver-leaved shrub is the blue sage. This plant is very fragrant, especially in the spring and during rain showers. The blue flowers grow on tall spikes during the spring months. This plant belongs to the mint family which all have square stems. A close relative and also in the mint family is the annual chia, dead stocks of which may be seen in many places along the walk throughout the year. Look for 10 to 18 inch high get stocks which appeared to have had to round pods, one of which the stalk grows through.
