Salvia genus belongs to lamiaceae family that was used in ancient and its application in culinary, flavor cosmetics, food and drinking industries is important. In the present study to assess compatibility of Salvia sclarea to field condition and determine its potential for medicinal and ornamental applications, wild seed were cultured in pots. After initial growth, seedlings at 6-8 leaf stage transfered to main plots. All phenologic characteristic were recorded during growth stages. The plants entered in flower phase (first half of July) and during the flowering period, growth indexes such as plant height, leaf length and diameter, leaf number, flowering stems number, inflorescence height, and essential oil content were measured. Also essential oil composition in full flowering stage identified by GC and GC-MS. The results showed this plant had good compatibility for culture and domestication in this condition. Aerial parts of plant, especially inflorescence part (freshly) contained the essential oil that the main constituents were linalool (30.03%), linalyl acetate (23.08%) and α-terpineol (11.13%). Due to leaf and flower beauty, compound aroma in flower stage and easy care, this plant could be used as an ornamental in urban green space.
