P. muticum is a native mint and goes by several different common names. It has sharp tipped silvery green leaves and blooms beginning in late summer with tiny white to lavender tubular flowers subtended by silvery bracts. It has a pleasant minty scent, is a host plant to several species, and is a true pollinator magnet. Develops clumps by spreading rhizomes. Start either indoors or via winter sowing. The tiny seed needs to be surface sown and kept moist.
