So who is she and why does she have all this good stuff going on with her? Lamiaceae is the name of a family of plants known commonly as the Mint Family. Backyardigans (that's us) use her all the time in the form of herbs such as basil, mint, rosemary, sage, savory, marjoram, oregano, thyme, lavender and catnip among others.
|Pardon me, would you happen to have any basil propagating by the kitchen sink (Yes, that's a Grey Poupon jar)|
