According to Illinois Wildflowers (author - D. Kurz) M. punctata is . Found usually in sandy fields woods, and dune areas. Occasional in the N half, rare in southern half, flowering July - Oct. Sometimes called 'Dotted Mint. You're next door and share similar ecosystems so I'd say yes.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thanks ,

It was planted in my garden last year and doing well , so much so I will be moving some and don't like to put things on the property outside of the garden that are not native.
The bees loved it, so I will be putting some over the hill on the wilderness point,along the creek in the sandy areas.
