Pycnanthemum muticum / Broad-leaved Mountain Mint
A mountain mint with a pleasing minty aroma. The flowers are a great attractor of pollinators. Known as “short-toothed mountain mint” for the small teeth on its broad, attractive foliage which takes on a frosted look.
Its minty volatile oils make it deer resistant. Host plant for two moth species, Crocus Geometer and Hermit Sphinx.
