Plant Description and Details

Found along the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains, this member of the mint family graces open sunny slopes and will flourish in the landscape setting also. It has arrow-shaped leaves with attractive toothed edges. Long-blooming, the summer flowers are pink, white or purple held on spikes above the foliage. Our local native plant expert tells us that this species does not spread as do other members of the mint family.
