Created By: Environmentally Endangered Lands Program


Florida Pennyroyal (Piloblephis rigida) is a Florida native in the mint family. You'll find it in drier upland communities, such as scrublands and flatwoods. Pennyroyal grows to about 1' (30 cm) tall and produces clusters of fragrant lavender flowers from November to April. Its blooms are attractive to bees and butterflies, and its leaves can be used to make a delicious mint-flavored tea or mixed drink. Florida Pennyroyal used to be a reliable nectar plant for domesticated honeybees, but it has become more scarce as its preferred habitats have disappeared.
