Mountain Mint - Pycnanthemum Virginianum

The name mountain mint is a bit of a misnomer, as the mountain mint plant does not grow in the mountains and generally doesn’t grow in mountainous areas. Mountain mint is a native plant to North America. It is a perennial herbaceous plant. They grow to be about 3 inches tall. The stems are green or reddish with variations having hair along the ridged parts of it. The leaves are shades of green.

Having full or partial sun over these herbal plants is the best option for growth capability. The plant requires moist soil, but it doesn’t have any particular soul needs aside from moisture. The plants will turn yellow and droop or completely fall off if the ground around it is not kept moist enough. The mountain mint plant is natural to grow. I can grow in words, swamps, prairies, and bluffs. But ironically it does not increase in mountainous regions despite its name.

The flowers of the mountain mint plant have a strong scent. The scent attracts certain types of insects, such as Pearl Crescent butterflies, wedge-shaped beetles, tachinid flies, bee flies, emenine wasps, sphecid wasps, halictid bees, honeybees, and cuckoo bees. There are certain types of insects who are repulsed by the scent of the stems of the mountain mint plant. Leaf chewing insects are typically the ones who are repelled by the smell. Animal herbivores are also often repulsed by the smell of the stems of the mountain mint plant.

If you are a beginner gardener, this is a natural plant to grow. It’s simple to prepare a place for it in a pot or a garden based on the soil and sun requirements. Mountain mint will add some greenery color and scent to your potted garden or your garden outdoors.

Mountain Mint is a perennial wildflower that will begin blooming in midsummer and last until the early months of autumn. The blooms will provide much-appreciated color in the autumn months when other plants are starting to die back. The flowers are pink, and the foliage is a darker green which gives a high contrast to the flowers. Pollinators such as bees and some of the most beautiful butterflies will be attracted to this plant. It is a rather large plant, and this will need to be taken into account when planting. It is commonly called the Hoary Mountainmint plant. They do well in dry to moist soils which have good drainage.
