Pycnanthemum muticum

broad leaf mountain mint

A wonderful mountain mint for the meadow garden, this hugely pollinator-friendly plant has an inconspicuous flower, but emanates a gentle minty aroma and offers lovely contrast with its silvery bracts and blueish leaves. Aggressive, so site accordingly!
