Silver Leaf Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum incanum) - 1 Gallon Pot
Listed as one of the top 10 plants in the United States for attracting and feeding butterflies and beneficial pollinators, Pycnanthemum incanum, commonly known as Silver Leaf or Hoary Mountain Mint, is a wonderful North American native aromatic perennial wildflower. During the hot humid summer, the soothing minty fragrance of the foliage and the fragrant frosty flowers and bracts impart the illusion of coolness. During the summer months, the tall, strong square stems clothed in mint green lanceolate leaves are topped with dense rounded clusters of white to soft lavender tubular flowers with purple spots. Butterflies and many other beneficial pollinators flock to the blooms and the flowers are excellent for cutting and use in flower arrangements. The leaves closest to the flower clusters are silver-grey to white, adding to the overall cool appeal of the plant. The leaves have a strong minty fragrance when crushed and can be used in cooking and making teas. This one thrives in sunny to partially shaded and dry to moist sites, even in rocky, gravelly and sandy soil. At 3 to 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide, Silver Leaf Mountain Mint is a fine accent in smaller garden beds or containers and in groupings where space allows. You might be happy to know that deer and rabbits don't find this one palatable. Get all the details below
