Narrowleaf Mountain Mint

 Seeds / Popular Featured

Special Notes: Loved by all pollinators but especially bees. When many flowering species are blooming, this species is one of the most visited by an array of pollinators. When rubbed, the leaves give off a very strong, dessert mint aroma.

This plant is photoreactive, meaning it requires light to germinate. When sowing, do not cover.
