Notes:

There are two plants like this growing in an area in the back of our yard, I don’t see any others like it. They have small lavender flowers, no scent detected. The plants are about a foot tall. We did see with a wildflower mixture in April but most of it washed away with a hard rain the day after we seeded, so we’re not sure if this is one that made it. We like it, so it’s staying. Just curious as to what it might be.

    Thanks Laura! These both look similar. The flowers on this plant are very small, but the stems do resemble the squarish shape of salvia.

    Link to lance-leaf sage (S. reflexa). Although according to sources, there is no record of this species in GA that doesn’t mean it’s not exist. But I’m no expert in this genus and only speculating. Click on images to enlarge. https://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=sare3

    The flowers & leaves to my eyes, they appear to similar to those in the Salvia species. I’m wondering if this is either one of the two varieties in the S. azurea (azure sage/prairie sage) or the S. reflexa (lance-leaf sage) (?). Check out these out and see if you have a match. The first included link is for pitcher sage (s. azurea var. grandiflora) one variety of S. azure. Click on images to enlarge.
