A versatile Native plant with bright lavender flowers and a spicy scent. The flowers are edible and the petals can be used in salads, on mild fish, in fruit salads, or to garnish drinks or dessert, they are minty and spicy. They are also a nectar plant for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Finally Native Americans used the leaves to make a poultice for skin irritations or minor wounds, and to make a tea to help treat colds and the flu.
