Pycnanthemum virginianum, or Mountain Mint, is a three-foot perennial that favors drier sites than its close relatives. Mountain Mint prefers full sun in dry to medium soils, producing white flowers in mid to late summer. The perennial is a great nectar source for many insects, including butterflies, moths, flower flies and native bees. It produces very aromatic foliage.
