Please Inquire About Availability
Hardiness Zone: 3-7 Height: 2-3 feet Spread: 1-1.5 feet Sun: Full sun Water: Medium Flowers: Showy flowers Wildlife: Attractive to bees and butterflies Bloom Colour: White Culture: Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Noteworthy Characteristics: The common name of mountain mint is somewhat misleading since the plant typically occurs in moist soils in wet meadows and along streams and ponds. An erect, many-branched perennial that grows 2-3 feet tall, it features narrow, toothless leaves and profuse, somewhat flat-topped terminal clusters of small, white flowers which bloom in mid to late summer. All parts of the plant emit a strong, mint-like aroma when crushed. Pycnanthemums have been used in teas.
