Pycnanthemum virginianum - Mountain Mint from Pleasant Run Nursery

Pycnanthemum virginianum

Mountain Mint

Mountain Mint is a member of the Mint family, which explains the fragrance emitted when the foliage is crushed and its unattractiveness to deer and rabbits. The white flowers are produced in mid to late summer, held in dense clusters which attract a multitude of pollinators and butterflies. Pycnanthemum virginianum thrives in wet meadows and other moist sites, making it a good native choice for sunny rain gardens. It's substantial production of nectar makes this an important candidate for pollinator gardens.
