Horminum Sage is a hardy annual native to the Mediterranean region. Grown in Britain as an ornamental in the 16th century, Horminum Sage was cultivated in American gardens as early as 1761, when it appeared on a plant list for a Moravian farm in North Carolina. Compact plants form spikes of colorful bracts in hues of pink, blue, and purple, which make long-lasting cut-flowers.
Start seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before last frost date at 68 degrees F. Transplant to cell-packs or 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant after last frost. Approximately 100 seeds per packet.
