Plant Appreciation #009
Salvia Viridis Painted Sage or Horminum Sage. The bracts of the Painted Sage are vivid in colour, ranging from hues of pink & cream to striking purples with tinges of blue. Below these vibrant bracts hide tiny flowers with hints of the colours above, painted sage blooms in Summer & Autumn creating upright clumps of bold & pastel colours. This colourful annual herbaceous plant has highly aromatic leaves & is wonderful at attracting bees & insects.
