Salvia pratensis (NL: Veldsalie / EN: Meadow Clary, Meadow Sage / DE: Wiesensalbei / FR: Sauge commune, Sauge des prés) is a herbaceous perennial in the family Lamiaceae, native to Europe, western Asia and northern Africa. The specific epithet pratensis refers to its tendency to grow in meadows. It also grows in scrub edges and woodland borders. The flowers have a wide variety of color, from rich violet and violet-blue to bluish white, and from pink to pure white.

Een artistieke invalshoek om een niet zo gemakkelijke plant knap in beeld te krijgen en een kleurencombinatie die inspireert. :) Ik wens je het juiste weer om foto's te maken!
