Not to me mistaken for wild mint, which looks similar and often grows nearby. Bugleweed has white flower clusters in the leaf axils. It has a “dull lemony” smell, but it tastes similar to Labrador tea and makes a great substitute for Earl Grey tea. Perhaps best of all, bugleweed produces small, edible tubers that make a great crunchy snack.
