Salvia virgata (wand sage, southern meadow sage) is a perennial plant that is native to Asia and southeastern Europe. It is considered a noxious weed in many parts of the world.[1]

S. virgata is sometimes included within Salvia pratensis. Flowers grow in whorls of 4–6 with a blue-violet corolla (rarely white) that is 1 to 2 centimetres (0.39 to 0.79 in) long. The ovate to oblong leaves are dull green on the top surface, with the underside covered with glands and thick hairs.[2]
