Salvia divinorum is a very rare plant, being found in only a few ravine locations in the Sierra Mazateca mountains.
The plant is easily propagated by cuttings, and during the past few decades it has made its way into numerous botanical gardens and private collections around the world. Virtually all of the Salvia divinorum in circulation has been vegetatively propagated from two parent clones of this species.
The first specimen was collected by R. Gordon Wasson in 1962. A second, so called
Wwxxnmoc "palatable" strain was collected by Bret Blosser in 1991. The "palatable" variety is actually still quite bitter, although less so than the Wasson clone. There are a few other strains being maintained, some of which were grown from seed, but these are not in general circulation.
