Annual Clary

Salvia viridis


Salvia viridis is a quick growing sage species; it can reach a height of 0.60m. Its flowering period could last over a month and it is noted for attracting wildlife.


Observed on the Eastern Mediterranean in Hatay Province in Turkey. There were many of them growing dispersed alongside other wild flowers, herbaceous plants and grasses on this rocky meadow; Approx. Elevation 400 m.


At first glance you would think that the blueish purple top is the flower, whereas It has tiny white flowers growing all along the stem.
