Salvia munzii is a species of sage known by the common name Munz's sage (named for California botanist Philip A. Munz). It is native to northern Baja California, Mexico, and it can be found in a few locations just north of the border in San Diego County, California. It is a member of the coastal sage scrub and chaparral plant communities.

Salvia munzii is a bushy shrub which may exceed 2 meters (6.6 ft) in height, its branches coated in hairs. The rough-textured leaves are up to 5 centimeters long, the undersides densely hairy.

The erect inflorescences are made up of many interrupted clusters of flowers, each cluster subtended by a pair of lance-shaped, leaflike bracts. The flower has a tubular blue corolla up to 1.5 centimeters long.
