SALVIA GLUTINOSA

Famiglia: Labiatae
Nomi volgari: salvia vischiosa, salvia dei boschi, salvia gialla, ormino selvatico, pignata.
Etimologia: il nome generico deriva dal latino”salvus”cioè “salvo”, con riferimento alle proprietà salutari della pianta.

Morfologia:
pianta perenne erbacea, con intenso odore aromatico, fusti semplici ed eretti, pubescenti in basso, glutinosi in alto, alta sino a 120 cm.
Le foglie sono lungamente picciolate, pelose glandulose su entrambe le pagine, con lamina astata alla base, sono grossolanamente seghettate.
Le infiorescenze sono dei verticilli che portano 2-4 fiori gialli, profumati, avvolti da brattee.
Il calice è strettamente campanulato, rigido e con peli ghiandolari, vischioso, la corolla bilabiata è tubulosa si allarga alla fauce in 2 labbra gialle, punteggiate di macchie rosso-brune.
Gli stami si comportano come piccolissime leve: quando gli insetti si appoggiano, penetrando nel fiore in cerca di nettare, azionano un meccanismo che gli ribalta sul dorso il braccio degli stami che portano le antere, rovesciando il polline sul dorso degli insetti stessi.

Distribuzione – habitat – fioritura:
diffusa nelle zone montane dell’Europa e dell’Asia, in Italia è pianta comune, assente nelle isole, dei boschi di latifoglie, dove fiorisce da giugno ad agosto sino a 1.700 m.

Proprietà ed usi:
dalla pianta è possibile ricavare gomma.

Note:
il genere Salvia, annovera circa 900 specie aromatiche annuali, biennali, perenni, suffrutticose e arbustive, diffuse specialmente nelle regioni temperate. Alcune salvie sono buone piante mellifere.
Circa 80 specie, per la bellezza dei fiori, sono usate come ornamentali, alcune trovano impiego come erbe medicinali o aromatiche.

Hello Luciano,
exciting flower again with the hairy details on the petals and sepals so lively. the little shines render an attractive view, especially with the dark background. The details really stand out with pretty view.

Foozi

Hi Luciano,

Your photographic work is great and very much appreciated but again, when copying a text from another site, which is not yours, you must mention your source just like this one.

Copying notes from elsewhere is as bad as copying photos from the net and nobody would like to see his/her photos stolen from the net...
Would you? :o)

Ciao Luciano!
Questo fiorellino ti dovrebbe ringraziare: con il tuo classico scatto a sfondo nero e la scelta di un POV perfetto lo fai sembrare quanto mai raffinato. Straordinari i dettagli della peluria, illuminati da una bella luce soft.
Composizione de presentazione eccellenti.
Complimenti per questa artistica composizione!!
Ciao e buona settimana! Vanda

Superb sharp detailed photo in beautiful flashlight and colours and a very good choice of composition.

Bonsoir Luciano,

Les fleurs sont bien placées dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Sauge glutineuse. La combinaison de la lumière de l'après-midi et celle du flash ont un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Pierre

A beautifully presented flower with a unique shape. The black BG makes you stayed focused on the delicate detail of the plant. Colors are true and natural and exposure is perfect. Great job!!

Ciao Luciano,
macro di grande effetto, anche se rimango del parere che la luce naturale sia sempre la soluzione più opportuna, tu riesci sempre a coniugare al massimo livello le scelte tecniche con gli aspetti compositivi.
Grazie e complimenti

Hi Luciano.
Excellent presentation of a nice plant. I like impressive diagonal structure of the image, superb details of the stem, leaves and flowers, fine vivid colours. Well done and TFS.

Ciao Luciano,
A very, very spectacular shot, the way I love it: with flash and huge contrast, which means proper exposure on the main compositional element and underexposure on the background. Some just told me that "it's not what we see with our eyes" - but I disagree, because the PHOTO is exactly what I see with my eyes! And I don't care if the original scene was similar to the image or not, because the pic is very spectacular this way and I love this kind of photos. Absolutely fabulous composition and light management, of course with perfect sharpness. Even an almost 2-year-old post, the photo of the day to me. I don't know how I missed when you uploaded it... You're a magician with your Sony. Bravo.
Best regards, László
