Pycnanthemum montanum- Thin-Leaf Mountain Mint- 5 Pint
Occurring in the southern Appalachian Mountains from West Virginia south to Georgia, this species is sometimes confused with Broadleaf Mountain Mint (P. muticum) though we think it’s most similar to Hoary Mountain Mint (P. incanum). All three species have foliage and flower bracts that are beautifully dusted in silvery white as the plant matures. All mountain mints have flowers that, while tiny, are packed with nectar for butterflies and bees. Based on its southern origin this species may be a little less cold hardy than others, but its montane habitat suggests that it should thrive in most of our area.
