I actually planted the luscious red Salvia so I won't call it a weed. This is in a newly refreshed bed that will eventually be an 'attractor' for butterflies and hummingbirds.

I'd say definitely not a weed, and what a gorgeous red!
Nice editing too.

Thank you Sylvia. Other than Zinnias, this is the most 'reddish' summer flower I have that will take the summer sun here. Intensified by the green foliage and a little Picasa3 juice!

Samir, your comment suggest that you may be unfamiliar with 'Salvia'. The spikes of red flowers (also available in purple and white) fade and eventually fall off, new ones continue to branch off from the main stem, so there is continuous color all summer and fall. As far as I know, Salvia is an annual type plant.

It is the same with me Joan (for their height).

Not much else can be said about this Barbara...it's lovely and it's red. I'm not sure if it is edible :-))

Lovely, I need to get some planted. Would you believe we had a freeze warning last night. Didn't happen, thank goodness.
