Traditional Uyghur Medicine (TUM) is widely used in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the
east-west of China. TUM divided cardiovascular diseases according to causes and symptoms into
several different types with different treatments to gain effective results. In this study, it was
attempted to research anatomical characteristics of three frequently used herbs in cardiovascular
disease treatments in TUM: Dracocephalum moldavica, Ocimum basilicum, and Agastache rugosa,
all from Lamiaceae family. Leaf and stem anatomies of these three plants were examined in detail.
