(Horsemint; Horse nettle) Showy native of the western prairies from British Columbia down to Colorado and California. The nectar-rich rose-pink flowers are a magnet for bees and butterflies. The aromatic leaves can be added to salads and cooked foods. The aboriginal people used a tea made from the leaves for colds, fevers and stomach pains, and for feverish babies they placed leaves in the baby blankets so babies breathed in the aromatic oils.
