Botany picture #233: Prostanthera violacea
Currently at ANU's Kioloa field station with a group of students. I was happy to see the above Prostanthera violacea (Lamiaceae) in flower, as the mint family is still one of my favourite plant groups. I did my PhD on a genus of that family and will thus always have a soft spot for them.
