Basil Thyme
Calamintha nepeta* /Mint Family

I found this plant blooming at the base of Ozone Falls on Nov. 5, 2004. The wind from the spray made it challenging to take the picture! This plant has fine hairs on the stems and leaves. The leaves have a strong aroma. Like many other "weeds," this plant blooms long after the native plants have gone to seed.
Perennial
Where seen: Ozone Falls SNA, Warriors' Path SP
{Formerly known as: Satureja calamintha}
