Salvia lyrata L. aka Lyreleaf sage

I know I am off-track from the Rogers’ silver-plate versions, but I am still working on figuring things out, so it meant more research. Silver-plate will still be here tomorrow, but these wildflowers might not be. Rogers in all the incarnations is on hold for a couple of days.

This wildflower is found throughout the southeast, including Mississippi, and my blogging buddies’ stomping grounds in Arkansas, Missouri, Virginia, and North Carolina. It ranges from Florida to East Texas and north to New York. The little trumpet shaped blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds, although I have never seen any hummingbirds near the few plants around my woods.

I spotted them for the first time last year, but never got around to photographing them. Today, there were several news blooms in the woods and yard. The magnolia tree is budding and in another few days, it will start blooming. Yeah! Eye presents!

    A delicate beauty! I imagine a dinner table set with Rogers silverware with a small, tall clear vase of salvia lyrata in the center.
