Salvia verbenaca   Wild Clary

Salvia verbeneca

We found only a few plants of this on the roadside verge where, according to the books, it likes to grow. It is described as glandular-hairy in books on Mediterranean plants but Stace differs. The leaves seem to indicate that this must be S. verbenaca with stalkless upper leaves and stalked lower ones.
