CRESTED LATE-SUMMER MINT
L. M. Davis
An uncommon introduction from Asia, this summer blooming annual mint was collected by W.S. Martinus along a wooded trail in Muskegon Co. in 2013.
The inflorescence structure is unique in this species; the flowers are arrayed in narrow terminal and lateral spike-like racemes and subtended by ± orbicular to reniform bracts, with an apical awn and ciliate margins, that are essentially uniform in size and shape from bottom to top of the inflorescence.
