open pollinated. A good germinator (+85%) but needs 2-3 months of cold stratification. I prefer to winter sow; germinates within 6 months. About 45000 seeds per lb. which I keep refrigerated to help reduce dormancy and stratification requirements.

As compared to big sagebrush (A. tridentata), A. nova is small (typically shorter than 20 inches), leaves are 3 lobed, with the leaf constricting immediately below the lobes, somewhat like a chickens foot and are a darker shade of gray-green. A. nova seed is approximately 2.8 times larger than big sagebrush seed (900k seeds/lb vs 2500k seeds/lb).
