Slender Mountain Mint is a warm-season, perennial that is native to the eastern U.S. and is found in upland prairies, open woods and pine barrens. Leaves have a strong, minty scent when crushed, and the small, white flowers occur in clusters at the top of the branches. Because it is long-blooming, it is an excellent choice for pollinator conservation. The flowers are especially attractive to honey bees and short-tongued native bees. Plants are deer resistant.

Sowing: Direct sow in early spring as soon as the soil has warmed, pressing into the surface of the soil surface since this plant needs light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. If starting the seed indoors, keep in mind that the best temperature for germination is 70 degrees F. Keep seedlings lightly moist, and transplant them as soon as they have developed several leaves.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established, and control weeds. Mature plants tolerate drought well and flourish in fairly dry soil, though they will benefit from occasional watering in dry weather. This plant also grows well in rocky or clay soil. It can spread vigorously by rhizomes once established, though it does not usually reseed. This plant is extremely attractive to bees, and is a valuable nectar plant; it also grows well in containers.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
