Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

IM002385

I found this wild plant growing near the stream by the roadside this afternoon. Its leaves are fragrant. They smell like oregano. So far, I haven’t been able to locate any photos that resemble this plant, but it is one beautiful wild thing. Any ideas?*

*Thanks to B. Wayne Harris, Wildlife Biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, our latest mystery plant has been identified.

“This plant is a common but attractive variety of Monarda, particularly Monarda punctata. The most frequent common names that you hear for this flower is horsemint or dotted horsemint. They are very aromatic. I walked through a patch of them yesterday in Calhoun County and smelled like them all afternoon.”

Speak. Leave a memory.
