Pycnanthemum tenuifolium

Slender Mountain Mint

Abundantly blooming, Pycnanthemum tenuifolium, Slender mountain mint, is known for its slender leaves and multistemmed habit, and is relatively short for a meadow companion plant, growing to only 2-3' in height. From July through August, profuse small light pink to white flowers top Pycnanthemum tenufolium. Grows best in full sun to partial shade, with dry to moist, well-draining soil, like that found in upland prairies, dry, rocky, open woods, or fast-draining wet meadows. Similar to other Pycnanthemum species, P. tenuifolium attracts a wide array of pollinators, from native bees to butterflies, to birds.
