Pycnanthemum virginianum

Virginia Mountain Mint

Erect, many branched plants have very narrow, toothless leaves and are topped by numerous small, flat clusters of white flowers with tiny purple dots in summer. Fantastic pollinator plant. Leaves have a very strong, minty scent. May be used in teas.

Prefers full sun to part shade and moist soil. May be somewhat aggressive and require some form of restraint. Less so in drier soil. Pollinator favorite! NATIVE.
