Look up Science Name by Photos: All species (& cultivars) from genus Salvia (and Rosmarinus)

Until 2017, Rosemary was known by the binomial name Rosmarinus officinalis, it is now a synonym. The new scientific title it has been given is Salvia rosmarinus. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is one of the first to adopt this change in the scientific name for rosemary after research has shown that it is, in fact, salvia, or a sage.
