An attractive member of the mint family! Spikes of violet flowers grow 1 to 2 feet tall from a basal rosette of leaves. The leaves have the approximate shape of a lyre, hence the name. Lyre-leaved Sage can also be mowed to keep as a low ground cover! American Indians used the root as a salve for sores. Whole plant tea was used for colds, coughs, and nervous debility. Used as a folk remedy for cancer and warts.
