Our Experience

You’ll want to give this plant room to sprawl out and form a large patch. A few weeks before it flowers the top most leaves will start to “frost” becoming a hazy white color. Shortly after the flowers will appear and then the magic begins!

We consider short-toothed mountain mint (STMM) to be an essential plant in our habitat. It attracts dozens of amazing insects! Wasps, bees, beetles, and bee mimic flies will chaotically buzz above the flowers at the height of summer.

STMM is very popular with members of the Hairstreak and Brushfoot families of butterflies. We haven’t observed much, if any, members of the Swallowtail family nectaring on the flowers.
