Spreading through rhizomes, this plant has beautiful pale violet flowers in the spring, prefers shady streambanks, or a bit of year round water in your garden, and makes a refreshing, minty sun tea. Loosely stuff a glass jar with fresh leaves, fill to the top with cold water and let sit in the sun for about 3 days. Put in the refrigerator for a cool beverage in hot weather.
