Re: Artemisia ludoviciana

OH, how wonderful! Just some dried or fresh leaves for now would be great! And Zem is sending me some this spring. You'll laugh if I tell you why I need it...but here goes. At Thanksgiving my sister and brother in law told me the new house they moved into (well, new to them, but not a new house) has nightly "visitors" and it's "creeping them out". Come to find out, the couple that lived there before them had a very tragic story...and she ended up dying. ANYWAY...I told her to smudge the house with white sage to get rid of "bad energy" and to purify the space. Now, ya'll have to know that I'm part Native American and a member of the Choctaw Tribe....so I take this stuff seriously. (I know a lot of people don't and that's O.K.). And I know she can buy smudge sticks in the store...but I wanted to make one for her...in my own way. So...there ya go. I used to have some white sage when I lived in Texas but just never got around to growing it here...but I want some to put in my "sacred herb garden".

Jesse, how strange. I just had a member of our city administration email me
looking for a source for this plant. 'Silver King' is a give away plant
around here. I keep some in my garden for drying and also have some in the city
garden. Each spring I pull this plant by the hand full as it is a traveler but
easy to thin.
Here is a bit from her email: " It is the tall, single stem, blue-grey
sage that is native in the northern plains (South Dakota). Our Native American
friends dry the plant and
then use it in their sweat lodge ceremonies. Burning it signifies prayer,
and purification."
Blue Bird Nursery (Nebraska) is a wholesale supplier and they also have a
retail outlet on site but I don't know about mail orders. How much do you
