Deadnettle Family Lamiaceae


The deadnettle family are distinctive, not just because of their trumpet shaped flowers, but because they have square stems. A number of familiar garden herbs fall into this category and many emit a strong scent from a crushed leaf. The family includes mints, bugles and woundworts.
