Rains and cooler weather persisted long after the solstice but now there is a bit of an upturn and in the wishlist garden it is sunshine SUMMER and I would plant….
Salvias, lots of them and this one in particular – Salvia x sclarea var. turkestanica (I think). Evidently hybridised with clary sage judging by the name and overwhelming evidence of pink bracts as the lilac hooded and white lipped flowers fade. Just caught these towards the end of full bloom but still so pretty.
This completes the week’s flower series. Happy flower Friday too!
Wishlist Gardening series – I’m occasionally making a note of plants I see and like for when I have a garden.
