Late on Parade

Salvia elegans

Salvia elegans, otherwise known as Pineapple Sage, is late to the garden parade.  Only in the last few weeks has it come into its own.  Dithering throughout the summer and early autumn, holding back with dramatic flourish until early winter.  Now many of its rivals are long passed, leaving a gap in the market for attention.   With velour napped scarlet flowers and fragrant foliage, it has been most welcome to both hungry pollinator and colour starved gardener.

  1. Lucky you! Three buds on the poppy, drooping lower and lower as the night goes by, then attempting to recover during the daytime. It looks like we might get a bit more snow, too. 😕
