I assumed that horehound would be deer-resistant because of the fuzzy leaves. But the resident deer here did not read the same manual as I, and they nibbled away. So this plant lives in a cage, for now. Maybe it will get large enough someday to not need protection,
The flowers were a pleasant surprise, but they are so tiny as to be almost non-existent. I had the camera so low to the ground, I could barely see what I was photographing.
I purchased this as a small plant start, thinking I would add to my collection of herbs, but I knew very little to nothing about it. I have heard of old-time horehound candy, but never tasted it. A google search was in order. I did not find a photo with leaves as gray as my plant, so I am unsure which particular sort of horehound this is. But I did learn it is a member of the mint family and can naturalize, so I have been forewarned.
