More than just a pretty field


The greens, whites and purples make this Duplin County field come alive in the sunlight, but it’s more than just a pretty field of flowers. The field is one of clary sage, or Salvia sclarea, a biennial or short-lived herbaceous perennial in the genus Salvia. The plant has a lengthy history as a medicinal herb, and is currently grown for its essential oil, used in the making of perfumes and as a muscatel flavoring for vermouth, wines, and liqueurs. It is also used in aromatherapy.
