garden photography: covered in velvet

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!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
