About: Red Sage, also known as Dan Shen is a perennial herb that is native to China and Japan, but does grow in our zone three gardens, flowering beautifully beginning in early summer. The azure blue to lavender flowers have a unique shape, similar to tiny hooks that also hold a sticky resin. Though a member of the Salvia (sage) genus, it is uniquely different from the culinary garden sage most are familiar with. It is the dried red roots that are used in preparing this extract. Salvia root is bitter in taste, and slightly cold in action. It has been shown to promote blood circulation, increase coronary blood flow improving micro-circulation and has antimicrobial properties against some tic-borne infections. The herb also has overall protective and strengthening qualities.
