Pycnanthemum virginianum

  • Perennial
  • Grows 60-90cm (24-36") tall
  • Hardy in Zones 3 to 9
  • Attracts beneficials 

The native range of this cousin of traditional mint stretches from Virginia north to southern and central New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario. It is called Mountain Mint, but it actually prefers moist soil in swampy terrain or near running water in full sun. This herbaceous perennial is hardy in Zones 3 to 9 and grows 60-90cm (24-36") tall. It is a bushy plant with many branches that bloom from July to September. The clusters of white flowers (which may be flecked with purple) are attractive to a host of beneficial insects, including wild and domestic bees, tachinid flies, predatory wasps, and butterflies. Its leaves and flowers have a strong minty scent when crushed. Although this plant is technically edible, it has more utility as a companion plant, attracting beneficial insects to the herb or vegetable garden.
