Plant of the week.
Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum
U.S. Native perennial plant that is very easy to grow and needs
very little maintenance once established. It is not fussy about
the soil type and will grow well in poor rocky soils. IN fact any
soil type that is not waterlogged will make it happy but rich organic
soils allow it to grow faster, larger and produce more flowers.
The masses of flowers are arise in mid to later summer and last
for about a month. The are beloved by butterflies and our wonderful
small native bees. Needs little watering once established unless
there is a prolonged drought. Hardy to zone 5 with some reports
of zone 4. Deer and rabbits don't eat it.. Flowers first year from
seed, but plants increase in size yearly.
Add this to your lawn and stop having to fertilze it. Clover fixes nitrogen which helps your grass. If you want less maintenance and a greener ‘lawn’ this is a must. More info.

Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas.
