Pycnanthemum muticum

Pycnanthemum aff. muticum
Another North American that certainly deserves to be better known. Forms colonies of upright stems with fresh green rounded leaves ultimately developing an almost Euphorbia-like inflorescence of tiny white flowers subtended by silvery white bracts. At this stage the whole plant has a pale silvery sheen.
Pycnanthemum muticum
Not invasive. Has a lovely fresh peppermint fragrance too, and can be used in the same way. Any soil.
£8
