Flowers: Racemose, mostly 2 per node and opposite, at ends of branches; calyx 7-10 mm long, puberulent and glandular-punctate; corolla lavender to crimson, to 25 mm long. Fruits: Smooth nutlets. Ecology: Fround on dry, rocky slopes, often in canyons from 6,000-8,000 ft (1829-2438 m); flowers July-October.

Etymology: Salvia comes from Latin salveo, or I am well, while lemmonii is named for John Gill Lemmon (1832-1908) and his wife Sara Plummer Lemmon (1836-1923) who collected in Arizona in 1884.
