Cunila origanoides /Mint Family

I found these pretty little mint-family flowers blooming at Big Ridge State Park in early September. The leaves have a strong minty odor when crushed. Like other mints, Dittany has opposite leaves. The stems are very thin and woody.
Perennial
Where seen: Big Ridge SP, Great Smoky Mountains NP
