Branched upright stems are adorned with pretty pairs of ˝” violet-blue lipped flowers from June through September, leaves up to 2 ˝” , spreading by rhizomes & seed. Makes a lovely tea. The name ‘Mad-Dog’ became associated with the plant when an 18th century physician claimed he had cured people of rabies using this plant – his claims were quickly discredited but the name stuck!
