What is the plant
Ballota pseudodictamnus, the false dittany, is a species of flowering plant in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to the southern Aegean region. Ballota pseudodictamnus is native to dry Meediterranean regions in Europe and western Asia.
Ballota pseudodictamnus is a low mound-forming evergreen shrub growing to 50 centimetres (20 in) tall and wide, it bears almost circular, dished, silver-green leaves with a soft felted texture; and masses of pink flowers (which are mostly hidden by the leaves) in late spring and early summer. The Latin specific epithet pseudodictamnus means "resembling Dictamnus". However, any superficial resemblance is only between young plants, and disappears when they reach maturity. Several common names are attached to this plant, including false dittany, false divinity, and Greek horehound.
