Mountain mints are bee favorites and the foliage has a very pleasant smell. A many-branched, perennial that has extremely narrow, almost needle-like leaves. In the mid to late summer, the plant is covered with small, white flowers. All parts of the plant emit a strong, mint-like aroma when crushed. An assertive spreader.

"The shallow nectaries of mountain-mint and its seemingly abundant nectar attract an amazing parade of bees, beneficial solitary wasps, flies, beetles and small butterflies such as hairstreaks." - 100 Plants to Feed the Bees
