Growing in part shade, woodland edge, in N. VA mtns. Opposite arrangement of leaves, toothed leaves. Stems very short hairs~fuzzy. Flowers on stalks attached at leaf axils.

(large green seeds seen in pic are Jack in pulpit and are not to do with plant in question.)

Thanks for any help....even if you think it looks similar to something you might have seen :)

I am not sure what it is. Seems to be a member of Lamiaceae family. Maybe Salvia ?

Wish other member will come soon to help Smiling

Thank-you so much for your input XiaoLong!

Not salvia but close Smiling ...in same order but different family...Phrymacae (lopseed family)! It is Phryma leptostachya (American Lopseed).

I moved here (little patch in Appalachians) about 5 yrs ago. Previous owners completely decimated native flora....well, I thought they had but I keep finding new species and I am somewhat obsessive about discovering their identities...I am not an expert so this one took me awhile!
