Do the leaves smell like bad body odor or stinky sweat socks? I cut short the young lives of my seedlings after I got a good whiff of them while thinning them, LOL.

I have this too, never noticed stinky leaves. I have, purple,pink, and white. It is as Baa says, salvia horminium or I recall the term salvia viridis. Have you heard this term ,Baa? I bought my seed from Chiltern's.

You're quite right Salvia virdis is the more correct name for Salvia horminum!

Scents are all subjective -- I love the smell of daffodils, but my hubby says they stink, LOL. :)

It is my understanding that the true clary sage is Salvia sclarea. Hugh green leaves at the base, biennial, very similiar to Salvia argentea, reseeds as far as 20 feet. I haven't had Salvia argentea reseed, but it will grow 'out' from the base.http://www.grovestreet.com/jsp/onepic.jsp?id=73105

This is the perennial problem with Common Names, they don't belong to just one plant. There can be no such thing as a true Clary Sage since, as we see here, at least 2 plants hold it as a widely known common name.

Baa, you caught me using a 'quotation' from a book on annuals. Good call.
