Pycnanthemum is a clump-forming aromatic perennial. Blunt Mountain Mint spreads by rhizomes in optimum conditions but is not invasive as many of the true mints (Menta). This perennial is a favorite of bees and butterflies.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Blunt Mountain Mint flowers best when planted in full sun but can grow in bright shade. Unwanted spreading can be controlled by cutting off the underground rhizomes with a spade. Plants grow best in fertile, moist-to-medium moisture soils that are well-drained.
Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
We use custom, earth-friendly packaging to make sure your order arrives in great condition, and we ship based on the best planting time for your growing zone (see the approximate dates below), unless otherwise indicated at checkout. If you wish, you can indicate a specific ship date during checkout.
