“There are over 5,000 species of mints worldwide and include many cultivated varieties such as lavendaer, rsemary, basil, spearmint and peppermint. Like all other members of the mint family, the steams of this plant are square in cross-section. Leaves grow opposite each other on the stem. The flowers, formed like tubes, have two lips. Horsemint has roughly traingular leaves with coarsely-toothed edges, and has a minty odor. The small, white or pink flowers occur in a dense cluster.” Source: How to Identify Wildflowers Near Your Camp, USDA Pamplet. Photo taken at Tony Grove in Northern Utah July 2009 by David Densley.
