Another member of the mint family (ref. earlier posting of Wild Bergamot) is Catnip… besides its well known feline (including lions and tigers) psychoactive properties, the plant was used by pioneers and indians for medicinal purposes… Catnip can also be a flavoring spice for foods, soups, stews, etc. in either dried or fresh form… Not native to North America, Catnip was introduced to this continent by European settlers who brought along the plant for their herb gardens… now considered a wildflower!
