During flowering season, this plant is buzzing with pollinators. Plant it near your garden to help attract them to help with garden pollination. I’ve seen bumble bees of various species, honey bees, butterflies, and other tiny native pollinators.
The plants I sell from my nursery have been ethically propagated. These plants are root divisions of a larger plant in my own garden that was started from a root division of a wild plant.
They enjoy full sun, can tolerate dry conditions and poor soil but like other mints, they’ll grow happier with better soil and regular watering.
Wild Mountain Mint Growth Habit
It will spread, like any other mint. If you want to keep it confined, grow in a large container with drainage. Height is about 3 to 3.5 feet.
