Slender Mountain Mint
Jeffrey Pippen, http://www.duke.edu/~jspippen/nature.htm
Slender Mountain Mint (Pycananthemum tenufolium) is a minty-smelling plant that grows in clusters to about 20-30 inches tall. Its white flowers bloom from June-September and attract birds, butterflies, bumblebees, and other pollinators. It prefers moist, acidic soils and either full sun or partial shade. Look for it in dry woods, meadows, fields, and thickets. While deer enjoy eating the leaves, rubbing the leaves on your skin can provide a natural mosquito repellent.
Did You Know?
Jones Bridge spanned the Chattahoochee River from 1904-1922, falling into disrepair in the 1930's. Half of the bridge was "stolen" in 1940, neighbors didn't know the workers cutting the bridge were not authorized to do so until it was too late.
