Red sage, bearing the scientific name Salvia Miltiorrhiza, is a small herbaceous, perennial flowering plant from the family Lamiaceae, commonly known as the sage or mint family. Even though gardeners grow red sage primarily for its beautiful light purple to lavender-blue flowers, herbalists value its red-colored roots for their powerful beneficial properties. Red sage root has been revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.
