Pycnanthemum virginianum (Virginia Mountain Mint) is a medium-sized native perennial, growing two to three feet tall, which produces profuse, terminal clusters of small, white flowers dotted with purple from July to September. Since the flowers are so densely clustered, Pycnanthemum virginianum can accommodate many pollinators at the same time.

Although related to mint, Pycnanthemum virginianum does not spread as aggressively as some relatives, and instead grows well in wet soils, making it idea for rain gardens and shoreline plantings. In addition, as a member of the mint family, Virginia Mountain Mint has a strong minty odor when crushed, making it resistant to deer browsing.
