Aka as Licorice Mint, this North American native hardy perennial produces copious amounts of nectar, attracting hosts of pollinators. Long-lasting spires of fragrant purple flowers bloom from July-September. Grows 3-4 ft, making a strong vertical garden accent. Valued culinary and medicinal plant. Mint family member. Homestead, permaculture and polyculture garden favorite.
Direct seed in spring or fall, or start indoors about 8 weeks before last frost. Light-sensitive seeds so just tamp into soil, don’t cover completely. Thin to 2ft apart. Likes full sun and average soil. Self-seeds readily. Divide after 3+ years.
