Collinsonia canadensis / Stoneroot


A wonderfully large woodland herb in the mint family, Stoneroot’s ziggurat-shaped blooms are scented with an aromatic lemon-citronella fragrance.

Stoneroot grows in rich, moist soils, especially in mature, diverse forests. A good late-summer nectary for woodland bees and other small pollinators. An important native medicinal plant.

Spreads readily in drifts, excellent for weed suppression in deer-free plantings.
