Morpholouical characteristics of stems, leaves. bracts. calyces and corollas are taxonomically disci-limn:rum! characters in Salvia In this paper we present morphological anatomrcal and ecolourcal features of S Imthata C A Meyer and S palaecima Bentham as well as [mu omorpholouical char acteristics of their pollen grains and nutlets using scan iii electron microscopy Anatomical characters such as size of cortex and vascular tissue, number of pallsade par erwhyma rows and vascular bundles are found to be important species specific characters Pollen grams m the species are different in shape and size. but they look similar in their exine: sculpturing. shape. size and ornamentation of millets are found to be different The two investigated Sahna species grow on clayey-loamy and loamy soils.
