From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lamiaceae or Labiatae (the mint or deadnettle family) are a family of flowering plants. The plants are frequently aromatic in all parts and include many widely used culinary herbs, such as basil, mint, rosemary, sage, savory, marjoram, oregano, hyssop, thyme, lavender, and perilla.
Some are shrubs, trees (such as teak), or, rarely, vines. Many members of the family are widely cultivated, owing not only to their aromatic qualities, but also their ease of cultivation: these plants are among the easiest plants to propagate by stem cuttings.
