    1. this happens for 2 weeks a year, and not every year - but if it rains, this area reacts with an incredible wildflower show. and everybody rushes to see it... :-) Posted 6 months ago

  2. I've gown Salvia viridis in my flower garden. Lovely and weird looking. Posted 6 months ago
    1. it's a lovely flower! have you seen that when it dries, the fruit are held close to the stem, compressed - and with the first rain they rise and open up and spread the seeds? it's really cool!

      1. It has been many years since I grew this plant so I don't remember much about the fruit. I'll have to order some seeds and plant it out here again. Posted 6 months ago
