Red Sage is a plant in Red Dead Redemption and a plant that can be found in Red Dead Redemption 2. It can be obtained by Plant Gathering and used in Cooking recipes.

Red Sage is one of the most difficult plants to find, due to how well it blends in with the terrain.

Characteristics

Red Sage looks similar to grass, with the fluffy dark red flower heads surrounded by dark green leaves. It is ankle height but spreads quite far across the ground, and blends in very well with the grassy areas of Rio Bravo where it is found.

Red Sage can be recognized by its long stem, red flowers and lefty base. This plant can be spotted among the grass and forests in its native habitat of Rio Bravo, New Austin. This plant will replenish your Stamina Core if consumed, or when crafted into Bitters.[2]

Location

Red Sage is found in and around the Río Bravo area of the New Austin territory, close to Fort Mercer. The largest concentration is found to the north of Fort Mercer, near the small paths heading down to Mercer Station and Riley's Charge. Red Sage can also be found in smaller numbers near Benedict Point, in the west side of Rio Bravo.

Tips

  • To help find Red Sage when it's required, try buying a Survivalist Map from a General Store. This will make it much easier to find them, considering how much they blend in with the terrain.

Trivia

RDR

  • The description "Popular with women of a certain age" is a sardonic reference to one of the herb's real-life uses; as a treatment for symptoms of the menopause.
  • The genus name 'Salvia' is derived from the Latin 'Salvare', to be saved, an ancient reference to Sage's curative abilities. From at least as far back as the Middle Ages, Sage has been documented as a 'cure-all' with references to longevity in folk medicine.

RDR2

  • Red Sage can only be picked after the epilogue since its only located in New Austin.
