We're trying to identify a salvia in Georgia--can you help?

If you post either a picture or description and include a description of the habitat where it was observed, it is liekly that someone on the forum will be able to assist in the ID.

The identification at the top of the post is correct. This is indeed Salvia lyrata (lyre-leaf sage). The plant has already bloomed and is in the early stages of fruit. What you originally thought were flowers are bracts with some purple coloration near the tip.

I apologize for my initial response.  I accessed the forum while traveling and the weblink in your post did not show on my connection, only the question.
