I love nature. My garden is as eccentric and eclectic as I am.

This is pic of just one branch. The whole plant is over 7 ft tall. I thought it was a flower i planted but now it has tufts on the tips and my neighbor from burma says it is edible and was eyeballing it. Lol he wasn't sure of the name.

I do eat chia seeds so I guess this very well could be! I'll let them keep growing and see what happens! Thank you!

I actually planted some of my plants but they're only about 2 1/2-3 ft tall with no flowers, where do you live

North Carolina. I have 8 more of these plants growing. I hope they are chia! They're all taller than me, but I'm only 5'2. 😂

Chia's are supposed to get 7-8 ft tall. I have pics of mine posted, you can compare the leaves.

They also have purple flowers that come up like yours are.

@justin looks more like a species of Goosefoot (Chenopodium) to me.

Definitely not sage. I agree @tiggrx did some googling. Pretty confident its goosefoot. And its edible. Yay!
