Photo of the Day: Autumn Sage “Lipstick”

By Published On: October 25th, 20190.4 min readCategories: Photos

The past few days have been hotter than Hades, but the natives are thriving (except for yours truly, I’m not happy). This one is a variety of Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) showing off how it got the name “lipstick.” It’s a little over five feet (1.5 meters) high and equally wide and spreads like crazy if you let it. I only planted one about 10 years ago, but it’s managed to colonize areas of the south and west-facing slopes. Good thing they look nice or I’d have a real problem.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
