Meehan's Mint is a lovely native groundcover that thrives in shade. But don't let the common name fool you, it does not exhibit the very aggressive tendencies of true mint. The low trailing foliage is covered with bright blue flowers in late spring. The clean, neat leaves form a good green mat in average to moist locations. Native from western Pennsylvania to North Carolina, where it typically occurs in rich woods and wooded slopes. Hummingbirds and bees are attracted to the flowers, and deer leave them alone. What could be better? The genus name honors American horticulturist Thomas Meehan.
