The Plant Store will re-open for sales the week of May 13th, 2024 for local pickup

  • 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.
  • I'm currently working on shifting the store part of this site over to more complex software that will allow for filtering by multiple plant traits and making wish lists of species you would like to order, so please bear with me when it comes to announcing the exact species offerings for 2024 (there will be lots, including some species not previously offered).

Pycnanthemum incanum, Hoary Mountain Mint

Pycnanthemum incanum 

Hoary Mountain Mint

  • Average to slightly dry soils
  • Full Sun to light shade
  • 3’ tall, spreading to form a patch
  • Late summer blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in open woodlands or meadows, 

New to me, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

A very showy Mountain Mint with silvery bracts and large, pink to purple flowers. Like most members of the Mint family, these are abundant nectar suppliers and attract a wide range of nectar and pollen feeding species in the mid to late summer.

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