Clinopodium chandleri is an uncommon species of flowering plant in the mint family known by the common name San Miguel savory. It is native to northern Baja California and several areas of southern California, where it can be found in mountain chaparral. It is a small shrub with slender branches up to half a meter long from a woody stem base. The toothed or wavy-edged leaves are up to 1.5 centimeters long and wide, the hairy blades borne on short petioles. The herbage is glandular and aromatic. Flowers occur in the leaf axils. Each is bell-shaped with a tubular throat, the corolla white to pale purple and under a centimeter long.
