Our Experience

Lyre-leaved Sage grows wild in our grass each spring into early summer. It tolerates being mowed back after flowering. It serves as an early nectar source for a variety of pollinator insects.

This plant will spread across a wide area over time creating a beautiful bloom of flowers. We recommend giving it a large space in which to sprawl and reach its full growth potential. It’s found wild-growing in yards and grass areas that are not spread with herbicides. All the more reason to not use weed killers to have perfect monoculture lawns.
