Salvia is the largest genus in the mint family. This group of plants have approximately 900 species of annuals, perennials, and soft wooded shrubs. Their tubular flower can distinguish them in that they have two lips, the lower lip being flat but the upper lip is curved or helmet shaped. Many of the species have aromatic leaves and add a wonderful fragrance to the garden.

It is well suited for dry garden areas, reaches 3-4 feet in height and has a long flowering season (from spring to fall in wetter areas and fall to winter in drier areas).
