photo_103_hot_lipsThis delightful flower is a Salvia Hot Lips from the sage family. It’s very prolific and an annual. We now have three in our garden and I love them. They flower from May through to October.. Behind you can see a very high Loire at Amboise. Some of the bike paths further along were under water and not many people were taking the risk of parking too close to the river bank. If you want to know the whole, very interesting story about the Salvia Hot Lips, click here.

Cette belle fleur est une Salvia Hot Lips ou sauge, une annuelle très prolifique. Nous avons désormais trois dans notre jardin et je les adore car elles fleurissent de mai à octobre. Derrière vous pouvez voir la Loire bien haute à Amboise. La piste cyclable plus loin sur les berges était sous l’eau et il n’y avait pas beaucoup de personnes qui se risquaient à mettre leur voiture près du bord.

    The story does show what a useful plant it is and should do very well here in France, even with a non-gardener.. I might ask at the garden centre. Of course, to me Hot Lips is M.A.S.H.

      Yes, I love the name! I’m sure it will do well, even with a non-gardener. Let me know!

    Quelle coincidence. We had lunch with the owners of these flowers yesterday. Perhaps you took this shot while we were inside having lunch.

      No, I took the photo when we went to the Shaker on Friday night.
