A 1-2' perennial with 1" white flowers. The fragrant foliage has a very good mint odor. Native to 2000'+ throughout much of the West. It likes part shade to shade where the summers are hot and full sun where the temperatures do not reach above 85-90 deg. It needs a fairly rich soil, garden water. A middle to upper montane species that resents lower elevations in the west. I would expect it to be very useful on the east coast in rock gardens or perennial beds.
