Blephilia hirsuta, Hairy Wood Mint

~Coming along slowly, will likely be ready for the third round of sales starting June 9th~

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.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
