Pycnanthemum verticillatum var. pilosum – Whorled Mountain Mint- 3 Quart
Another in a diverse but largely unknown genus of native mints. They can be difficult to tell apart because the clusters of white flowers spotted with purple are similar across the genus. This one is covered with fine, soft hair and another name could be Downy Mountain Mint. There are few better nectar plants for butterflies and beneficial insects and just like the other species this plant can be used in a salad or to make a refreshing mint tea.
