A member of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Like most members of the family, lyre-leaf sage has square stems. The few leaves that grow from the stem have an opposite arrangement; the basal leaves are in a rosette. These basal leaves (and sometimes the stem leaves near the base of the plant--see picture 3) have a distinctive lobed shape that gives the plant its common name.
Open areas: fields, edges of woods, etc.
