Considered by many to be the best of the Mountainmints, Clustered Mountainmint produces an abundance of tiny whitish tubular blooms touched with purple or lavender in tight clusters held above the attractive bluish white bracts. The bracts are probably more showy than the flowers but the flowers attract loads of pollinators including bees and small butterflies. The foliage is wonderfully fragrant and can be used in teas and cooking. This is a durable and slowly spreading native perennial that flowers throughout the summer months.

Clustered Mountainmint is one of our favorites to pick and smell as we walk through the garden.
