Wild Weeds – Weed of the Month
Lyreleaf Sage is a flowering perennial that is strictly upright with a rosette of leaves at the base. The leaves are deeply 3-lobed with a few simple leavers higher up on the stem. Typical of the mint family, this plant has a square stem which is easily felt if you roll the stem between your fingers. Purple-blue showy flowers bloom in spring in whorls around the stem. The exposed lower lip of the flower makes a great landing platform for pollinators and this plant is a favorite of bees and butterflies.
