Giant Purple Hyssop

Erect, multiple, semi-woody stems with opposite, lance shaped leaves with rounded teeth at the margins. Each stem is topped with a spike of many small purple tubular flowers with extended stamens. Highly fragrant foliage gives off a pleasing mint-like smell, especially when disturbed. The flowers attract numerous insects with abundant nectar.  Small black seeds form in the papery bracts that remain after the flowers wither.
