Pycnanthemum tenuifolium (Slender Mountain Mint) is a medium-sized native perennial which is similar in appearance to other mountain mints, but which tends to grow more upright and to a shorter height, usually around two feet. Slender mountain mint produces dense clusters of small, white or lavender colored flowers through the summer and early fall which are attractive to pollinators.

Slender mountain mint, as a relative of the mint family, has a strong minty odor to its tissues, and is capable of vigorous growth and spreading via rhizome, but is not as invasive as true mints. Due to its thicker, rhizomatic roots, Pycnanthemum tenuifolium is more tolerant to dry, rocky, and clay-rich soils than some species of mountain mint.
