Pycnanthemum muticum, commonly known as Clustered Mountain Mint, has lustrous leaves, silvery bracts with pinkish blooms, and a compact habit that distinguishes this member of the Mountain Mint family. Its fragrant leaves are sometimes rubbed on the skin to repel mosquitoes. Pycnanthemum muticum is native from southeast ME to TX. This pollinator favorite spreads rapidly by rhizomes; it may need to be planted in a large container to control its spread. Clustered Mountain Mint is not as aggressive as Virginia Mountain Mint. Very attractive to pollinators. A Rare Roots' perennial favorite!
