 What's up with the name Salvia reflexa and the various incarnations of Salvia lanceolata?
  After collecting Salvia reflexa Hornemann, I noticed some odd determinations in SEINet, and some confusion about the correct name for this little, blue North American annual and two other Salvias, one from South Africa and the other from South America, to which some form of S. lanceolata has been applied.

In SEINet, there are 888 records of Salvia reflexa Hornemann, and 79 vouchers of collections determined as some form of Salvia lanceolata.

  • Eleven are Salvia lanceolata Rydberg
  • Two are Salvia lanceolata Lamarck
  • and the remaining 66 are Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga.

The eleven vouchers of Salvia lanceolata Rydberg are all at a single local herbarium.

  My findings about these names is summarized as follows:

  • Salvia reflexa Hornemann is a valid, accepted name for the little blue North American annual Salvia.

  • Salvia lanceolata Lamarck is the valid, accepted name for a shrubby, South African Salvia with rust-colored flowers.

    The name is occasionally misapplied to S. reflexa Hornemann.

  • Salvia lanceolata Broussonet is an unresolved name.

    The usually cited publication does not contain the name and other publication details for this name were not found.

  • Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga is an illegitimate name because the name was previously used by Lamarck (1791).

    Regardless, it is often used as a synonym for Salvia uliginosa Bentham, a native of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina.

    The name is also sometimes misapplied to the North American Salvia reflexa Hornemann.

  • Salvia lanceolata Rydberg was never published by Rydberg.

    Rydberg (1900, 1906, 1922) used S. lancelolata Willdenow for the little North American annual.

  • Salvia lanceolata Willdenow is an illegimate name because the name was previously used by Lamarck (1791).

    If it were legitimate, it would now be applied as a synonym of the North American S. reflexa Hornemann.

    The name was widely used as the accepted name by many authors, such as Bentham (1833), Gray (1878), Britton & Brown (1898), and Rydberg (1900, 1906, 1922), and cited as a synonym by Harrington (1954).

    Weber & Wittmann (2012) and Ackerfield (2015) use S. reflexa Hornemann and do not list S. lanceolata Willdenow as a synonym.

  • Salvia trichostemmoides Pursh is a valid name for a plant collected by the Lewis & Clark expedition and a synonym of Salvia reflexa Hornemann. It should be listed as a synonym in lists of North American locations.

  • Salvia aspidophylla Schultes is a valid name for a plant that may have come from Peru, and is likely a good synonym for Salvia reflexa Hornemann. Because it's origin is somewhat unclear, and may have been South American, listing it as a synonym in North American lists seems optional.
  Here are some of the details of what I found.


Jean-Baptiste Lamarck

Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck (1 August 1744 – 18 December 1829), often known simply as Lamarck, was a French naturalist. He was a soldier, biologist, academic, and an early proponent of the idea that evolution occurred and proceeded in accordance with natural laws. He gave the term biology a broader meaning by coining the term for special sciences, chemistry, meteorology, geology, and botany-zoology (Wikipedia, 2016).

Lamarck (1791) is apparently the first author to use Salvia lanceolata, applying the name to a shrubby, South African Salvia with rust-colored flowers. This shrub is available today through the horticultural trade; though, it is too tender to survive through Colorado winters.

Jens Wilken Hornemann


Literature Cited:
- Hornemann, Jens Wilken, 1804.
- Wikipedia contributors, 2016a.  

Jens Wilken Hornemann (6 March 1770 – 30 July 1841) was a Danish botanist. He was a lecturer at the University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden from 1801. After the death of Martin Vahl in 1804, the task of publishing the Flora Danica was given to Hornemann, who subsequently issued fasc. 22-39 (1801–1840) with a total of 1080 plates. J.W. Hornemann was professor of botany at the University of Copenhagen from 1808 and director of the Botanic Garden (from 1817). In 1815, he was elected a corresponding member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and in 1816, his status was changed to that of foreign member (Wikipedia, 2016).

Hornemann's (1804) Enumeratio plantarum horti botanici Hafniensis, a list of the plants at the Copenhagen botanical gardens, is not available online. “Hafnia” is a Latin geographical name for Copenhagen. WorldCat reports the only copy available is at the State Library of Berlin.

Literature Cited:
- Earle, A. Scott, and James L. Reveal, 2003.
- Hornemann, Jens Wilken, 1807.  

It appears that the second edition of Hornemann's Enumeration contains the description of Salvia reflexa Hornemann.

Hornemann based his 1806 description on a garden specimen — introduced into Europe from Mexico — giving it the scientific name that we know it by today (Earle & Reveal, , p. 46)


Augustus Broussonet

  Pierre Marie Auguste Broussonet (28 February 1761 – 17 January 1807), French naturalist, was born at Montpellier.

Literature Cited:
- Broussonet, Augustus, 1805.  

Broussonet's (1805) Elenchus plantarum horti botanici Monspeliensis is a listing of plants found at the Montpellier Botanic Garden. Broussonet was Director of the garden from 1803 until his death in 1806. Curiously, the list does not contain Salvia lanceolata as might be expected from Willdenow's description below. This would seem to remove Broussonet from contention as an author of the name S. lanceolata.


Carl Ludwig Willdenow

Other articles:
• Glossary:  ☉;  

Carl Ludwig Willdenow (22 August 1765 – 10 July 1812) was a German botanist, pharmacist, and plant taxonomist. He is considered one of the founders of phytogeography, the study of the geographic distribution of plants. Willdenow was also a mentor of Alexander von Humboldt, one of the earliest and best known phytogeographers. He was a director of the Botanical garden of Berlin from 1801 until his death (Wikipedia, 2016).

Willdenow's (1809, p. 37) description of Salvia lanceolata from his Enumeratio Plantarum Horti Regii Botanici Berolinensis, a listing of plants in the regional botanic gardens of Berlin. Willdenow seems to be unaware of Lamarck's (1791) use of the name S. lanceolata or, perhaps, it simply was not grown in the Berlin garden.

Damaso Antonio Larrañaga


Literature Cited:
- Wikipedia contributors, 2016c.  

Dámaso Antonio Larrañaga (Montevideo, 10 December 1771 – 6 February 1848) was a Uruguayan priest, naturalist and botanist. He was one of those principally responsible for the founding of the National Library of Uruguay and the National University of Uruguay (Wikipedia, 2016).

Literature Cited:
- Larrañaga, Dámaso Antonio, 1922.
- Larrañaga, Dámaso Antonio, 1923.  

Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga was described in Part 2, page 12 of Larrañaga's “Writings.” While the writing occurred sometime in the late 1810's, they were not published until 1923. Part 1 of Larrañaga's writings are available through Biodiversity Heritage Library. I have not found an online source for Part 2.

Regardless, Larrañaga's use of the name was illegitimate, because it was previously published by Lamarck (1791). In the meantime, Bentham (1833) published his Salvia uliginosa Bentham, for which some sources treat Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga a synonym, despite its illegitimacy.


Frederick Pursh

Lewis made two collections of a mint on September 21, 1804 at the Big Bend of the Missouri River in Lyman County, South Dakota.

When Frederich Pursh examined Lewis's plant, he saw that it was a Salvia and named it Salvia trichostemmoides (his species name means “similar to Trichostema,” a genus of North American herbs and shrubs). Pursh did not recognize the plant as one already described by Jens Wilken Hornemann (1770-1841), a physician and professor of botany at Copenhagen (Earle & Revel, 2003).

Josef (Joseph) August Schultes (15 April 1773 in Vienna – 21 April 1831 in Landshut) was an Austrian botanist and professor from Vienna. Together with Johann Jacob Roemer (1763–1819), he published the 16th edition of Linnaeus' Systema Vegetabilium. In 1821, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. He was the father of Julius Hermann Schultes (1804-1840).
In 1796 he received his doctorate at Vienna, where he was a student of Johann Peter Frank (1745-1821). Later on, he served as a professor of botany and natural history at the Theresianum in Vienna, followed by professorships at the Universities of Krakow (1806) and Innsbruck (1808). In 1809 he succeeded Franz von Paula Schrank (1747-1835) at the University of Landshut as a professor of natural history and botany. At Landshut, he also served as a medical director. Swedish botanist Carl Peter Thunberg commissioned Schultes to edit the first complete edition of his Flora Capensis, which was published in 1823.

Recommended Changes to Taxon Tree

  • Lamiaceae
    • Salvia L.
      • Salvia lanceolata Lamarck — add this accepted name to forestall adding other illegitimate uses of the name.
      • Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga — move to S. uliginosa where it is properly a synonym.
      • Salvia reflexa Hornem.
        • [Salvia lancifolia Poir.]
        • [Salvia trichostemmoides Pursh] — add synonym as written by Pursh and preserved by others, such as Reveal, Schuyler & Moulton (1999).
        • [Salvia trichostemoides Pursh [orth. var.]] — add author and note orthographic variation.
        • [Salvia lanceolata Rydb. [unpub.]] — add this name for completeness, because it has been used as a name for this taxon.
        • [Salvia lanceolata Willd. [illeg.]] — add this name for completeness, because it was previously commonly used as a name for this taxon.
      • Salvia uliginosa Benth.
        • [Salvia lanceolata Larrañaga [illeg.]] — while illegitimate, need to keep this in the taxon tree because some collections use this name.
