Can I harvest seeds from my Russian sage for next year? I love the low maintenance of this plant in my dry soil. How do you find the seeds, and when do you plant them again?

The easiest and most common way to propagate Russian Sage is through division or cuttings in the spring.
You can however collect seeds.
When the flower sepals turn brown and dry, the tiny seeds are about 1/32 " in diameter.
You do not have to separate the seeds from the chaff but you will need to give the seeds a cold period.
This is called stratification.
