Read full entry
Clustered bushmint (Hyptis alata) - also known as Desert lavender - is a perennial "forb" (a herbaceous flowering plant other than a grass) in the Lamiaceae family. Native to the south-central and south eastern United States, it grows in wet pinelands and wet prairie to a height of 2 to 3 feet or more, with white, densely clustered 1 1/4 inch flower heads spotted with purple, and simple, lance-shaped serrated leaves. It blossoms in summer and fall, when its conspicuous, fragrant flowers attract bees, birds and butterflies.
