    Habit
    Much-branched aromatic undershrub varying from a neat bushlet 40 – 60 cm high, the secondary brachlets only rarely again branched to an untidy undershrub with long thin, flexuose secondary and tertiary branches, 0.5 – 1.5 m high; stems obscurely quadrangular, glabrous apart from the scurfy leaf nodes
    Leaves
    Leaves petiolate, dense to rather lax; petioles 1 – 3 mm long, jointed just above the persistent base, glabrous; lamina 3 – 25 × 1.5 – 7 mm, narrowly ovate, lanceolate, linear-oblong or very narrowly oblong-elliptic, narrowed to an acute apex, cuneate or attenuate onto the petiole at the base, margin obscurely to distinctly 0 – 5-toothed on each side, glabrous to minutely scabrous, the lower surface paler and dotted with yellowish glands
    Inflorescences
    Inflorescence of few to many 1 – 5-flowered axillary cymes; peduncle 0.5 – 1 mm long, glabrous; bracts at branching point, 0.5 – 1.3 mm long, linear, shorter than the pedicels, glabrous; pedicels 0.75 – 1.5 mm long, glabrous; calyx 2 – 2.5 mm long, campanulate in outline, ribbed, gland-dotted on the exterior, glabrous apart from hairs in the interior at the mouth, teeth 0.5 – 0.75 mm long and wide, triangular, acute, erect to spreading; corolla white, subequally 5-lobed, the tube 1 – 1.5 mm long, ± equalling the calyx tube; anthers subsessile, included; style c. 1.75 mm long, glabrous, included
    Fruits
    Nutlets 1 – 1.5 × 0.75 mm, trigonous, weakly obovoid with a short, slightly bent, obtuse acumen, obscurely verrucose, glabrous.
    Note
    Clinopodium axillare is divisible into two relatively distinct subspecies, which occupy different habitats within the same geographical area.
