When Ken and Ellen moved to their 40-acre ranch in the high desert of San Diego County, they took particular interest in a plant that is natural to the region called White Sage, or Salvia apiana. It is also known as “Bee Sage”, “Magic Sage”, and “Sacred Sage”.
White Sage (Salvia apiana) grows natively only in the small region of Southern California / Northern Baja California, in the high desert between 1,000 – 3,500 ft. elevation. Yet this rare plant is central to many Native American religions of the Southwest. It is sought after in modern times by many peoples around the world who have come to recognize the special qualities of Salvia apiana.
