Mountain Mint is a hardy, shrublike, American, native wildflower. Huge numbers of all different sizes and colors of nectar hungry pollinators - native bees, moths, butterflies, and wasps are busy buzzing and drinking from the flowers. A strong spicy fragrance and velvety soft leaves add to the appeal. Pycnanthemum has 24 native varieties. Some are endangered in the United States and Canada. It has a magical quality, possibly because it seems to be alive with so many beneficial pollinators. I imagine they spend the night amongst the flowers! They almost seem intoxicated! The pollinators aren't easily distracted, so no need to fear them. Each year I add more varieties to my mid-west gardens.
