Nice photo
I don't believe this is in the correct place . I am not familiar with this plant , but I do grow narrow leaf mountain mint.

If you are not sure maybe the plant could be identified over in the ID forum.

I have it down as Pycnanthemum flexuosum. However, my proposal to create a new plant P. flexuosum was declined, and I was told that P. flexuosum and P. tenuifolia are synonyms.

PS--I was surprised, too. I agree it may be worth revisiting with @Zuzu

I found that there's some controversy surrounding P. flexuosum, with some botanists caling it a synonym and some recognizing it as an accepted name, so I created an entry for it and moved the photo.
