Stachys chamissonis

Stachys chamissonis is a species of flowering plant in the mint family known by the common name coastal hedgenettle. It is a perennial herb native to the west coast of North America . . .” from the internet.

While out clearing the forest roads of intruding branches and blackberries, I spotted some pretty flowers growing on a bank of Griffith Creek. Unable to identify them using my various apps, I reached out to Mike A. who immediately identified them. Thanks, Mike A.!
