This low-growing herbaceous perennial of the mint family resembles Basil in its leaf shape but lacks the strong minty odour. It forms a loose ground cover in dry forests and edges, meadows, prairies, and occasionally grows in wetter sites. It often grows on calcareous soils, which are common in southern Ontario.
