Hairy Mountain Mint is a plant that flourishes in part sun, such as along the edges of woodland areas. If you have a naturalized area or woodland garden in your home landscape, you can encourage Hairy Mountain Mint to grow in any site that receives a half-day of sun. They don’t need rich soil and Deer dislike it, so consider growing it in areas that often get browsed. Because it is rare in southern Ontario it should not be planted in the wild.
