Mountain Mint

There are many wonderful native herbaceous plants and flowers growing in the wild that are all too often overlooked or forgotten. I think this is one of them.

MOUNTAIN MINT IS VERY INVASIVE WHEN IT GETS ENOUGH WATER. BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU PLANT IT. RAE

Hi Rae,

Something tells me you have some experience with mountain mint being invasive.

I'm not sure where you are but location but that can make a difference, and different species can act differently. Maybe you are north? But then, Hoary Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum incanum) is on the endangered list in Vermont, New Hampshire and Canada and that's pretty far north. I'm wondering because I've not heard of P. incanum being invasive. But, I'm not sure about other species of Pycnanthemums.

May your life be like a wildflower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day --Native American Proverb
