[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Salvia indica is definitely the most beautiful sage in Israel. I know this picture is so flashed, but otherwise I couldn't have got the patter of the flowers well. The plant is rare and protected, 1-2 m. tall. It has a leaf rossette at base and an erect branched inflorescence.

Hi Ori,
Looks quite different from the Salvia coccinea, which is a very popular flowering annual in Indian gardens.
Thanks a lot for sharing this new species of Salvia.
