The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

Blephilia hirsuta, Hairy Wood Mint

Blephilia hirsuta

Hairy Wood Mint

  • Average to moderately high moisture soils  
  • Partial to Full Shade
  • 36” tall, 18” to 24” wide
  • Summer to Early Fall Blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in Open Woodland and Forest Ecosystems

Still new to my gardens, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery. 

For partial sun to shaded areas in average to high moisture locations.

Can spread to form dense colonies and grow up to 3' tall.

Similar in overall appearance to Catnip and Motherwort (both introduced Eurasian species) bit with larger, showier flowers. Reportedly a very popular nectar source for many pollinators.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.

While it rarely comes up, I do reserve the right to limit plant quantities, mostly to help ensure that as many native plant gardens as possible become a reality
