Description Fine Print
 
Mountain Mint is perhaps the single best nectar source of all perennials for native butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects. You can literally hear the plants buzzing with activity as you approach. This uncommon, non-spreading mint has broad lustrous aromatic leaves with showy silvery flower bracts and pinkish flowers. This native is happiest at the wood's edge, so it is excellent for a naturalized border or woodland garden. The leaves are loaded with pulegone, the same insect repellent found in pennyroyal. Rub it on your skin to repel mosquitoes!
