Pycnanthemum muticum

Mountain Mint

As the summer advances the new leaves of Mountain Mint take on a silvery-white coloration to the point where they look like small white Poinsettias. The small pink flowers are a great butterfly attractant, and the foliage is deliciously aromatic. This plant is one of the significant late summer beauties on the High Line in NYC.  Its rapid growth habit makes Pycnanthemum muticum a great groundcover.

PRN Preferred:  Attracts the most pollinators we've ever seen, very critter resistant.
