Wild Basil
 

 

Wild Basil is a type of mint, quite downy, and distinctive for the whorls of flowers around the stem (including the top), the sepals giving it the appearance of a ruff.

The flowers are pink-purple, appearing after mid summer and until early autumn. Common, especially in the south, in grassy places on lime.
