Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel
Spotted beebalm or spotted horsemint is native to the eastern United States. The USDA PLANTS database reports it being present in California, but the Jepson Flora Project states that the record of the plant occurring in California was based on an erroneous report.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has an excellent factsheet (though it also cites this species as growing in California). The Plants for a Future database details the traditional medicinal uses.
