The plant family Lamiaceae was named and described by Ivan Ivanovič Martinov in Tekhno-Botanicheskīĭ Slovarʹ in 1820.

This family includes many well-known and loved genera many people use every day. I am not sure how many pages of annuals, perennials, and wildflowers I have on this site in the family, but there are quite a few…

Plants of the World Online lists 236 accepted genera in this family commonly known as the mint or deadnettle family (as of 2-3-21 when I last updated this page). The Wikipedia article says the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families lists 7,534 species in this family, which may not be 100% current.
