|Clinopodium hinense var.
hibetchense is a perennial herb inhabiting forest- edges or
floors in hilly districts; slender stems extend obliquely upward,
seeming somewhat weak-kneed, with many hairs. With short petioles,
leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, in the shape of an oval to long
oval, 6-8cm in length, with tips obtusely pointed, bases circular,
and margins with serrations. Branch tips bear inflorescences with
several rows of white to light red-purple ligulate flowers, 6-7mm
long, in whirls; upper lips are small and lower ones are
significant, cleft in three. Bloom time: June-August.
