The genus Salvia comes from the Latin salveo, "I heal," and salvarae," to heal," first used to describe species in this genus by the physician Pliny. More than 900 species can be found in various environments, from tropical through temperate in the Old and New Worlds. Species in this genus are distinguished by the presence of a single fertile anther cell positioned to deposit pollen on the backs of visiting bees.
