Monardella villosa Blooms: May-­August

Monardella villosa is in the Mint Family and is commonly called Coyote Mint.    Monardella v. grows throughout most of California and can be made into a tea or used to alleviate upset stomach, sore throat and respiratory problems. We find Coyote Mint in places like Bayview Hill and Glen Park in open sunny areas.
