Zone 5/6 Northeastern Indiana.
Should be of seeds from trade marked "Bog Sage".
W/S in February 2012.


Plant grew to about 42" tall, and began blooming in mid-summer. Blooms are extremely tiny, and positioned only along the stalk.
Their placement made them extremely difficult to photograph well; I must have taken 50 of them trying to get a good close-up. Hilarious!

Top third of plant..


Best I could do on the fuzzy little blooms...


Thanks, in advance! Smiling

Thank you all so much!

You're the best!

I'd been trying to figure out this one all summer on my own...and ended up just going round and round and round in circles! Whistling

I'll add these images to the DB later. I can't open them right now. I evidently used up all of my high-speed internet earlier today. Whistling
