This 2 ft. tall mint was found growing in a rock-strewn boulder field in northern Michigan. The flavor is powerful, clearing out all nasal passages. Spreads by rhizomes. In 2 years covered a 6’x6’ area. Is durable even in dry soils. Has a nice lattice of rhizomes and might be good as a field groundcover in an orchard setting.
