Flowers are less than showy, but this plant is for the pollinators. Mountain mints are one of the best wildflowers you can plant for attracting a diverse and constant array of pollinators, and this species particularly tops the list. Try planting some by a window or somewhere else where it is easy to watch–it is a true joy. Can be a happy spreader, but relatively easy to keep in check by pulling up runners once a year. This is a great plant for erosion control or to let naturalize.
