The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.
  • Please see the Plant Nursery for a photo of the different sizes/prices on offer and for information on the sizing of these seedlings and the details of the sale

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
