Comment:

This member of the mint family is native to the southern and central US. It tolerates full sun to part shade and medium to dry, even rocky soils. It needs good air circulation and naturalizes well by self-seeding. The blooms are showy, as dense solitary heads on square stems, from pink to white in color with purple spots and make good cut flowers. The leaves are scented and the plant is generally resistant to damage by deer. Best planted in an informal setting.
