Pycnanthemum incanum produces semi-erect stems with opposite pale green leaves topped with clusters of flowers. The flowers are small, white to pinkish colored, and attract numerous insects. The leaves under the flower clusters often appear white, or “frosted” like plants at high altitudes, which is where the common name originated. All parts of the plant have a fragrant minty smell. Excellent pollinator forage plant.
