Mountain Mint

Mountain Mint

Mountain mint is a native plant, and it's such an easy, fun growing experience. The mountain mint plant is a fantastic naturalizer, so you can easily grow it in a woodland garden. No need for weeding with this perennial. If you like it not to spread, you can simply break spreading roots where you don't want them to go in spring. The most exciting thing about growing mountain mint, however, is the pollinators. We've seen pollinators on this sun plant that we've never seen as gardeners. At times, it almost looks alive because it's covered in so many pollinators, and they're so intent on feeding, that they've never been aggressive with us. If you're looking to increase pollination in your garden or sustain our important neighborhood pollinators, the mountain mint plant is an excellent plant for that! The foliage is strongly scented, if you agitate it or crush the leave, you'll get a strong camphor-like fragrance. Plant mountain mint in a mixed foliage border among other sun plants with dark foliage, and this plant's silvery color will pop! Fun fact: Mountain mint isn't native to the mountains, so its name is kind of a mystery.
