This bushy or trailing, herbaceous annual grows to about 18 inches tall. Its
aromatic leaves are broadly ovate with scalloped edges. Its natural habitat is moist hammocks and disturbed areas of Florida, Bermuda, the West Indies and Mexico south to Panama. It blooms all year in Florida and sometimes becomes a bit weedy in cultivated areas.
