White Sage prefers a sunny location, well draining soil, and good air circulation. It easily hybridizes with other Salvia species!

The leaves and stems were eaten by the Chumash and other tribes. Several tribes used the seed for removing foreign objects from the eye, similar to the way that Clary sage seeds were used in Europe. A tea from the roots was used by the Cahuilla women for healing and strength after childbirth. The leaves are also burnt by many native American tribes, with the smoke used in different purification rituals.Bumblebees, hawk moths, and wasps pollinate white sage, and hummingbirds also appear to like the plant.
