Pycnanthemum muticum (Short-Toothed Mountain Mint) [30 Seeds]

$4.25

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-sowers only, because they are VERY tiny and require some patience. Sow in pots indoors or outdoors (do not cover the seeds; just press them into the surface) and keep them moist in a warm, bright place. Germination may be slow and irregular, with seedlings appearing over a period of weeks. They remain very small for another month or two, but once you transplant them to pots (either individually or in groups of 3 or 4), they will eventually put on a nice amount of growth in summer and are ready to move to their final position in fall.

Description

Short-toothed mountain mint (Pycnanthemum muticum) produces 2- to 3-foot-tall stems with intensely mint-scented, deep green leaves. Button-like, green heads with small, pinkish white flowers appear in mid- to late summer over long-lasting, silvery bracts. The plant spreads by creeping roots to form large patches: possibly too aggressive for the loose, rich soil of a typical garden border but perfect for a “wild” area, naturalistic border, or meadow planting. Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators love it! It’s a fragrant addition to handheld bouquets too. Short-toothed mountain mint is native to most of the eastern United States. I collected these seeds from plants that grow wild in my meadow. Full sun. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.

Collected in 2019 for the 2020 growing season. Provenance Milford Township, Bucks County, PA. At least 30 seeds.
