Pycnanthemum Michaux. Mountain-mint, Wild-basil.

Key to Pycnanthemum

A genus of 20-25 species, herbs, of temperate North America. Pycnanthemum remains a complicated and difficult group, with speciation apparently having proceeded by allopolyploidy, autoploidy, and aneuploidy. Numerous aberrant forms and (probably) sterile hybrids complicate identification and understanding.
