I have a friend who has named Day Lilies and she is looking for the White Sage that is used in Native American cleansing ceremonies.

It grow wild here. It is kind of picky about humidity. It like hot dry areas. I can see if I can find a plant. No guarantees But I can look next time I go out! Harvest some seeds for her.
A few facts below!
Native to the Southwest, White Sage likes dry conditions, especially in the winter. Over winter whole stems may turn black and die if the ground becomes too saturated. If the condition is prolonged the whole plant may die. In its native Southwest it is hard to water too much in the summer. But, in other areas where summer humidity plays a part it may be impossible to grow successfully. Growing it in a large container may help with high levels of humidity.
