Hot Lips


I finally got me this type of Salvia. I wasn't sure this plant would do good in my zone, 
since I grew up seeing it in Mexico where I'm from and I thought it would die in the winter time.
 In Mexico we called it Mirto del Monte. The place I got it from has been growing it for 
years, they assure me that its a perennial in our area.


                           Doesn't the picture above look like red lips? That's why it's called Hot Lips!










But it will not be having red hot lips all the time! :(  It's just because of the cooler weather we are having, 
and as soon as it gets back to normal hot summer it will only bloom all red. 


I have paired it with a red Dahlia.

  7. Beautiful shots of this flower, which sometimes so difficult to photograph well. We have it growing in our garden here in Melbourne.
    Many thanks for participating in Floral Friday Fotos.
