Lyre-leaved Sage (Salvia lyrata)

0 minutes, 27 seconds Read

This highly adaptable native perennial is a host plant for eight species of Lepidoptera larvae, including wavy-lined emerald moths and hermit sphinx moths. It also attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds with its flowers, which provide the perfect landing strip for pollinators! The basal leaves are semi-evergreen and I have personally found them to stay green year-round here in Lancaster County. It makes a lovely ground cover or “green mulch”, adding interest with its purple veined leaves. Come visit us and add this beauty to your own native landscape!
