I thought these seedlings were lyre leaf sage but they look different from the photos online. The underside of the leaves us a maroon color. It almost reminds me of bee balm?

Thanks Lin! I don't know if these seedlings will have a chance to get established before our first freeze? I guess I'll just take a chance? Thanks for identifying it Lin. Thumbs up

That's good to know stone, because I was afraid the seedlings wouldn't survive a winter here? I think once they grow a little larger, I'll plant them out in the yard. Thumbs up
