This top pollinator favorite is easy to grow and to care for. It’s loaded with nectar, so the subtly spotted flowers hum with life. Because of its strong smell, mammals won’t bother it, yet it’s a delight in the gardens because simply brushing this plant will release a beautiful mint aroma. The first botanical records of this plant come from French botanist Andre Michaux’s notes from the late 18th century. It naturalizes in dry prairie or glade habitats, but also does well in sunny to partially shaded, drained beds. It can readily spread by rhizomes, but roots can be cut back once a year to prevent spreading. Needs staking in windy locations. Used in potpourri, incense and as an ingredient in tea and natural insect repellent formulas. Sturdy, mint-scented foliage and flowers make excellent and highly fragrant additions to bouquets.
