When talking about one genus eg Salvias, once the genus has been mentioned, other species or varities in that genus can be abbreviated to capital letter and dot e.g.
S. Patens or for verbenas, V. Bonariensis, which in a prolonged conversation about Verbena bonariensis is likely to be shortened to VB...... not to be confused with gossip mags where VB is Victoria Beckham.
LOL lots of laughs.
