This photo appears to be miss-identified. Pycnanthemum virginianum will not get the white upper leaves that the one in this image has. I suspect this image is of Pycnanthemum muticum or Pycnanthemum albescens. Nice shot of a wonderful clump though!
If we had no holes in our leaves we would have no butterflies!

Hi there Brenda and Welcome! to ATP!

I downloaded that photo and many others from Crownsville Nursery.

If you look at the photo again, you will see a clickable link to their website. You may want to let them know they have not identified one of their plants correctly.

Thanks! Thumbs up

Thanks Vic!

Ah, I had not noticed the link. I will let them know! (nothing worse than ordering one plant and getting another...unless of course you want the other as well!)

I don't know. I'm sorry. Have you googled the plant, seeds or oil?
