Lyreleaf sage

Why don't more plants grow farther north? Both lyreleaf sage and fire pink seem to be offering examples. Cooler and shorter seasons or whatever, as you get to their northern limits you can see the effects. They just seem to lose enthusiasm. There were a lot of these blooming in southern Ohio yesterday. In that regard they were if anything, more enthusiastic than what I've seen in FL and GA. But the plants and their flowers were all smaller.
