Seed Study - Salvia reflexa

Species: Salvia reflexa
Common name: lance leaved sage

Seedling identification: Emergent seedlings are easy to confuse with Monarda fistulosa, but are greener in color and not leathery. Cotyledons (obvious in top photo but under true leaves in bottom photo) are broadly triangular but rounded at the corners and often notched. First true leaves are long, narrow, and have rounded tips. Veins are prominent.
