Item added to cart!

Mountain Mint is a clumping native perennial with dense branching stems covered with dark green toothed foliage that has a strong mint-like aroma if crushed.  The Flat clusters of tiny two-lipped flowers surrounded by showy silvery brackets bloom throughout summer.  Best flowering occurs in full sun and moist well-drained soils.  The flowers attract butterflies and bees, and the leaves can be used to make a mild tea.
