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!

  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!
