Florida Pennyroyal (Piloblephis rigida)
Florida Pennyroyal is a low-growning mint that grows in the Florida scrub. It is pretty common out here, mostly flowering in the late-winter, I found this one today with a few remaining blooms. It seems like the individual plant only lives a couple of years. It is relatively common, but only lives on pennisula Florida. I have heard you can make a good tea from the dried leaves, but I haven't tried it. Hmmmmm....sounds like I need to run a little experiment.
