Pycnanthemum tenuifolium 'Campbell Carpet'

Narrowleaf Mountain Mint

Plant Type:

SUN PERENNIALS

Pycnanthemum tenuifolium 'Campbell Carpet' - Masses of short, narrow leaves on strong upright stems project a soft appearance albeit on a tough plant. Clusters of white flowers barely touched with violet-pink foam at the tops of stems in summer in the shape of puffed well-defined hemispheres amongst the rich green foil. The flowers draw bees and butterflies aplenty. Though handsome all through the growing season autumn shines when the clean, dark green mound of foliage, develops a rich red-violet cast subtending the still white to lime-white seed heads which maintain their structure. The color contrasts strikingly with the ruddy foliage tones almost like a second season of flowering. Though Pycnanthemum tenuifolium enjoys a broad range of nativity in central and eastern North America this compact form of Narrowleaf Mountain Mint was selected by Plant Delights in Campbell County, Tennessee. Meeting its requirements is easy: site this low maintenance ground covering beauty in full sun planted in average soil. Established burgeoning pot from division.
