Blephilia ciliata

Sweet little plant with whorled clusters of lavender flowers stacked along the stems, similar to Lemon Bee Balm. Good nectar source for native bees and other pollinators. Spreads slowly by rhizomes to form clumps; less aggressive than most mints. Summer blooming, 12-24” tall, full sun to part shade, medium to dry soil.
