Horehound is an old medicinal herb, best known as an agent used in cough and cold preparations. It is a perennial member of the Mint family, and has the characteristic square stems common to mints. It is an attractive plant to bees, and has sort of a musky odor when brushed. The leaves are covered with white hairs, giving the plant an overall wooly appearance
