Salvia algeriensis is an annual salvia native to northeast Morocco and northwest Algeria, found at up to 600 m elevation. It grows nearly 1 m in height, with bright green ovate leaves about 8 cm long and wide. Each plant produces 3-4 inflorescences up to 15 cm long, with light violet flowers that have violet specks on the lower lip. The plant has a light scent when crushed, similar to thyme.[1]
