Mustang Mint (Monardella odoratissima) is also called Mountain Pennyroyal and grows in mountain forests and sagebrush scrub. It can be either a smooth dark green to a hairy dark grey-green. It is often dotted with glands which release a strongly minty odor when the plant is touched. The flowers range in color from white and pale pink to light bluish-purple. The flower has outer bracts which are like leaves, and rose/purplish inside bracts which enclose the many flowers like a cup.
