Pycnanthemum virginianum (Virginia Mountain Mint) [30 Seeds]

$3.95

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

Virginia mountain mint (Pycnanthemum virginianum), also known as slender or narrowleaf mountain mint, produces strongly upright, 3-foot tall stems lined with short, slender leaves and topped with clusters of small, purple-dotted white flowers in summer. Like other mountain mints, it is popular with a wide variety of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, and it is marvelous as a cut flower. The plants spread by rhizomes, so they’re best grown in a meadow-type garden or naturalistic planting rather than a formal border.

Virginia mountain mint is native to the eastern half of North America. 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.
