Downy Wood Mint attracts: butterflies, native bees, bumble bees, beneficial insects that protect your garden from pests and is deer and rabbit resistant!

Found in open woods and meadows, prefers slightly acidic, well drained soils so you may need to add some compost to your garden for this one. Whorled clusters of light purple fragrant flowers add a unique structure to the garden. Will spread but not as aggressively as culinary mints.
