A must have garden plant.
This easy-care, deer resistant, perennial plant is a must-have for any pollinator garden. It attracts insects, butterflies, and moths. Songbirds, which rely on insects, will appreciate this plant in your garden. Birds also use the wiry dormant stems for nesting material.
The small white flowers rise above lower growing plants, and provide an enchanting effect in a moon garden. The plant is highly aromatic, exuding its minty scent when you brush past it. Its leaves can be used in teas.
It grows to two or three feet tall in almost any soil from clay to gravelly. It prefers moist to average soil, and copes with drought by dropping its lower leaves.
This plant is a native to Pennsylvania, is of special value to native bees, and attracts predatory and parasitoid insects that prey upon pest insects.
