Found in a woodlot in Clarion Co., Pennsylvania in July and August, 2020. The purplish brown head is first just green when young. The top head looks more like a little tower of calyxes or bracts than an actual flower. The plant has several shoots from the same root. Its leaves are opposite.

    I can’t see details of “The purplish brown head”clearly to be certain. I’m wondering if this might be a species of self-heals (Prunella)? Check out the common self-heals (P. vulgaris) and see if you have a match. If this isn’t that, please resubmit with a better closeup of the seed head and flowers if there are any. Best wishes!
