Pycnanthemum virginicum-Virginia Mountain Mint

Propagating Pycnanthemum or Virginia Mountain Mint is done in the spring by digging up the parent plant and dividing into good rooted transplants or will self seed in the right environment. The plant prefers rich loamy soil, wouldn’t all plants prefer loam, and must remain moist either in sun or partial shade. The plant exudes a minty fragrance and butterflies and honey bees enjoy it flowers which are pink to white and bloom August-September. Its height can vary from 12"-36" I’ll presume depending on the richness of the soil, is deer resistant, deciduous, and native to North America.
