    Lyre-leaf sage is commonly found growing in hammocks of the northern counties south to the central peninsula and Collier County (Wunderlin, 2003). It blooms from spring through fall. There are ten sage species that are found in the state; two are non-native. It is equally likely to occur in wetlands or non-wetlands (estimated probability 34%-66%).

    Nearly 100 species of sage are found in the U.S. Lyre-leaf sage occurs from PA to KS and all states south (Kartesz, 1999).
