Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvare, 'to heal', and for centuries salvias have been valued for their medicinal and culinary qualities. Salvias, commonly known as sages, grow throughout temperate and subtropical parts of the world, from sea level to altitudes of more than 11,000 feet (3400 meters). They occur in many forms: perennial, biennial, annual herbs, and evergreen or deciduous shrubs. These amazingly varied plants are also noteworthy for their remarkable resistance to pests and diseases, their drought tolerance-and their beautiful flowers. "The New Book of Salvias: Sages for Every Garden" is now available in paperback. Betsy documents approximately 150 beautiful, garden-worthy species alphabetically, and includes botanical descriptions, information on habit, blooming cycle, recommended companion plants, and delightful historical tidbits of discovery and usage. In her ardent pursuit of salvias, Clebsch has explored the wild to collect plants and seeds to test in her California garden. The resulting wealth of cultural information in "The New Book of Salvias" ensures that our gardens will not only be exquisitely aromatic but also wonderfully picturesque.
