During September I want to see your favourite flowers.

(This month I’m looking at flower portraits – showcase a flower that you are particularly fond of or one that is unusual)

‘Velvet-Sage’ (salvia-leucantha) is an evergreen subshrub to 1.2m in height, with narrowly lance-shaped leaves white beneath, and small white flowers with conspicuous downy purple clayces. Also known as Mexican Bush Sage. It is definitely a plant you want to reach out and stroke!

  1. I think you’re inventing them 🙂 But it’s very pretty. Good day today and nicely established at… Dunkeld as a random guess? 🙂 🙂 Can’t dilly dally chatting. Someone’s got to write tomorrow’s walk.

    1. Haha… yes it seems like I am inventing them, but I saw this in South Africa and then again in the Logan Gardens! Yes, settled in near Dunkeld and watching Poldark. Managed to catch the Davis Cup match earlier – such a shame for GB to go out after such effort. Never mind, they did well and put on some excellent tennis. Cloudy today but we did visit an incredible castle garden, more later…

  2. Isn’t nature wonderful? There must be some reason that some plants have furry parts, but I can’t imagine what it might be – something to do with raindrops perhaps or just to entice humans to love them!
