Can you identify this flower?

I have several clumps of this stuff growing on the farm. But do not know what it is. Anyone know? The bees seem to love the small flowers.

Hey Bjorn. The plant you show is called Motherwort, Leonurus cardiaca. It does grow in clumps. Very attractive to bees. In the mint family...square stem. Related to Catnip. Plant was formerly used in medicine, especially for diseases of women...whatever that means. American Honey Plants, Frank C Pellett
