Pycnanthemum pilosum, commonly called hairy mountain mint, is a clump-forming
perennial that typically grows 1-3’ tall. It is native from Ontario to Michigan to Iowa south to Tennessee, Arkansas and Oklahoma. In Missouri, this Pycnanthemum is indigenous to prairies, open dry and upland woodlands, thickets and along railroads throughout most of the state except the lowland southeastern counties (Steyermark). Features small, two-lipped, white (sometimes lavender-tinged) flowers with purple spotting in mid to late summer. Flowers appear in both terminal and axillary clusters (to 1.5” wide). Leaves (to 3” long) are narrow (3/4” wide) and noted for being very aromatic when bruised. In comparison to other Pycnanthemums, its leaves are broader and short-stalked. Flower clusters are attractive to bees.
