Blue Anise Sage (salvia guaranitica)


I knew this was some kind of salvia, but I couldn't add it to my list until I knew its name. I've seen the red pineapple sage before, so I recognized the spade-shaped leaves and tubular flowers. Butterflies and bumblebees really like it. The orange jewelweed is fading now, but when it sprouted, it was mixed in with the blue anise sage, and I would see a hummingbird visiting nearly every time I went outside.

Here's my list so far:
1. Poison ivy
2. Virginia creeper
3. Wild blackberry
4. Lamb's Ear
5. Great laurel
6. Fireworks Goldenrod
7. Orange Jewelweed
8. Blue Anise Sage
