Salvia is the largest genus in the family Lamiaceae, with roughly 1000  species native to Eurasia and America. There are three distinct distribution areas, Central- and South-America, Central-Asia and the Mediterranean and E-Asia. Most species need a warmer climate than Iceland has to offer, but at least two species are hardy here.
