Vernacular names
English: New Mexico giant hyssop

Agastache pallidiflora, commonly known as New Mexico giant hyssop or Bill Williams Mountain giant hyssop, is a plant in the mint family. It is a perennial herb with semi-evergreen leaves. Leaves are simple and opposite in arrangement. It grows in moist canyons.[1] It is used by the Ramah Navajo as a ceremonial chant lotion, for bad coughs, and the dried, pulverized root used as dusting powder for sores or cankers. The Ramah also use it a fumigant for "deer infection", as a febrifuge, and to protect from witches.[2]
