Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran. Although it was first described in 1836, Salvia staminea has only recently been reintroduced to the gardening public. With its two-foot bloom spikes of pale flowers, it is quite a fine addition to the low water garden. The flowers are gathered in a series of whorls numbering two to six flowers each up the stems. The calyces of the flowers take on a reddish violet stain as they mature. The foliage is dark green and rounded.
