Clingman's Hedge Nettle
Stachys clingmanii /Mint Family
Rare - Threatened in TN

This was an exciting flower to find, it lives only on Clingman's Dome in the Smokies! I photographed this one in early July. It is not a true "nettle," this plant is in the Mint Family.
Perennial
Where seen: Great Smoky Mountains NP
