[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the rare sages of Israel, growing mainly in the north part of the country. We peopagate it succesfully at the Jerusalem Botanical Garden. The seeds germinate and produce a small leaf rosette and bloom at the second year. The inflorescence is up to 1.5 m. tall and the flower colour is unique (as you can see in the pic).

Nice one Ori, no mistaking this flower for anything but a member of Labiatae with the square stem and typical flower shape.
Thats one hell of an F stop F38 and still not get the top of the flower in focus which is a shame as it is a lovely flower, TFS
sorry out of points

Hi Ori,
This is a truly magnificent plant.
Very good details on this image.

Hi Ori,
I saw this beautiful violet flower in your archive. Wow, I love the form and the design.
My salvia I use in the kitchen is also violet but not so big and so beautiful. Excellent shot, I like it very much, thanks
