The species are Salvia aethiopis L., Salvia ceratophylla L., Salvia verticillata L. subsp. verticillata, and Salvia verticillata L. subsp. amasiaca. The chromosome number of Salvia aethiopis is 2n = 22, Salvia ceratophylla 2n = 18, Salvia verticillata subsp. verticillata 2n = 32, and Salvia verticillata subsp. amasiaca 2n = 16.
