- Genus (5): Lepechinia · Meriandra · Perovskia · Rosmarinus · Salvia
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 2,464 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Subtribe Salviinae.
Lepechinia is a genus of plants in the . It includes several species of plants known commonly as pitchersages (also pitcher sages).

It is one of several genera commonly referred to as sage.
