Hybridization within Turkish Salvia.

Salvia is one of the most commonly occurring genera of flowering plants, with about 1000 accepted species. Salvia thrives in China, Mexico, South America, and Turkey. Turkey is the second most diverse region for Salvia due its topographic diversity and dry climate. The high diversity of Salvia within Turkey affords ample opportunity hybridization, however few hybrids have been recognized. Here, we examined two putative instances of hybridization between species of Salvia in Turkey, neither of which has previously been documented.
