Salvia argentea (Silver Sage, Silver Salvia ), also known as Silver Clary, is a biennial or short-lived perennial plant. It is native to northern Africa. In habit it is similar to the related European species Salvia sclarea, forming a rosette of basal leaves in its first year, and flowering stems up to about 50 cm tall in its second year. Its leaves have a distinctive silvery white color (caused by numerous fine hairs), are about 8 inches long and rounded at the tip.
