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!

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!
ooh why can’t the internet provide textural photographs . . . . this looks as though it would be amazing to touch

What an amazing plant! Hope I come across one at some point.
This look like “fake fur”. Love it!
It does rather!
I found some photos to contribute this week, of water lilies — definitely one of my fave flowers.
I’m a fan of water lilies too. So thanks 🙂
It’s so pretty!! I agree with Karen/Elizabeth. It does look like fake fur 🙂

Such a gorgeous flower, Jude. I love the colour and the ‘velvet’ description is so perfect. I want to stroke it. 🙂 Here’s my orchid post: https://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2016/09/23/floral-friday-fotos-my-easy-care-orchid/
Thanks Sylvia 🙂
