Annual clary

Salvia viridis


Salvia viridis quickly grows to 1 to 2 feet (0.30 to 0.61 m) tall and 1 foot (0.30 m) wide, with a flowering period of over a month. Colorful bracts almost hide the tiny two-lipped flowers, which are cream-colored, with the upper lip tinged with purple or rose, reflecting the bract color.


Open space in Seih-Sou, the suburban forest of Thessaloniki, Greece.


Synonym: Salvia horminum. Greek name: Ελελίσφακον το όρμινον, κν. Καυλόχορτο, Σαρκοθρόφι.
