Narrowleaf Mountainmint is an attractive perennial that will grow in a wide range of conditions. It grows best when planted in rich, average to moist soil in full sun in a butterfly garden or prairie meadow with other prairie wildflowers, (coneflowers, black-eyed susans, blazing stars, marsh milkweed, beard-tongues), and prairie grasses, (little bluestem, and sea oats). The plants are avoided by deer, the flowers are very attractive to butterflies and are used in flower arrangements. Mountain mint leaves and stems are very fragrant and make a refreshing mint tea.
