Lyreleaf Sage, Salvia lyrata, is a wildflower that can be found in the eastern half of the United States and as far west as Texas and Kansas. The blue tubular blooms are on spikes above the leaves.

The green leaves grow next to the ground and have purplish edges.

You may see them mixed with other wildflowers. I think these white flowers may be Fleabane.

Happy Wildflower Wednesday!

  1. I don't know the names of many wildflowers so I'm impressed by your knowledge, Lea!

  2. Lea, so much thanks for capturing these cute frivolous and beautiful blooms of the sage plant for All Seasons! I didn't know about Wildflower Wednesday, so I'm going to check it out. Have a beautiful week and much joy! Jesh

  3. Hello, pretty wildflowers! I have seen the Fleabane but not the Sage.
    Wishing you a happy day!

  4. Those are very pretty. Trying to recall if I've seen them around here. You're ahead of us in blooming time so maybe in a couple of weeks.

  5. Lovely and useful wildflower. Pollinators love it.

  6. I love this wildflower...The house next door to mine was torn down and I've been rescuing it from the bulldozer.

  7. Lovely, always a bonus when leaves have their own charm


I enjoy your comments!
