Sticky sage CSC 3307

Sticky sage CSC 3307
Sticky sage (Salvia glutinosa) is, as its name suggests, covered in sticky hairs. It has a strong aroma, not unpleasant but not sweet either. This is a male flower, and to my mind its white pollen on the anther makes it look like a "toothy" open mouth. When bees land on the platform they activate a lever mechanism that deposits the pollen grains on their backs. It's a beautiful example of floral engineering.
