Purplish-red leaves, popular with women of a certain age.

–In-game description


Red Sage (Salvia miltiorrhiza) is a flower found in Red Dead Redemption. It can be obtained by Plant Gathering.

Note: prices listed on this page are based upon the player having neutral honor and playing the game on Normal difficulty. If the player has high honor, the selling price will be Increased by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing. Low Honor decreases selling price by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing. While playing the game on Hardcore difficulty, money is more scarce and the base, neutral honor price of each item will be slightly lower.

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.

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.

Background

Red Dead Redemption

Undead Nightmare

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.

Value

All prices are based upon the player having neutral honor. If the player has high honor, the selling price will be increased by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing. Low Honor decreases selling price by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing.

Trivia

  • 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.
