Flower of the Day – Purple Salvia

***

These are medium tall flowers, with the petals going up the stalk. They are deep purple to blue in color, with some green leaves below.

Salvia is also called the Seers or Diviners Sage.

From Wiki:

Salvia divinorum (also known as sage of the diviners, ska maría pastora, seer’s sage, yerba de la pastora or simply salvia) is a plant species with transient psychoactive properties when its leaves are consumed by chewing, smoking or as a tea.[2] The leaves contain opioid-like compounds that induce hallucinations.[3]
