I finally understood this plant group......
this is our own home grown... stachys ...
as the lamb's ear we grew in colder climes in north america...a very
useful herb for healing external and internal wounds... since the time
of early chistianity... .

I'll have to put this together now....
Wikipedia does not even mention s. sericea...
