Pycnanthemum virginianum - Virginia Mountain Mint

Virginia Mountain Mint may look similar to Narrow Leaved Mountain Mint, but prefers wetter soils and partial shade. It produces small white blooms attractive to pollinators, especially bees, and gives off an aromatic mint fragrance when the leaves are rubbed.

Found mostly in wet prairies and stream edges, it reaches heights of 1 to 3 feet and prefers partial shade. Look for it to bloom July through August.
