COMMON MOUNTAIN MINT
R. W. Smith
Fens, prairies, marshes, sedge meadows, tamarack swamps, swales, depressions such as old lakebeds; fields, sandy banks; less often in forested areas.
This is our only common species in the genus, and a fairly distinctive one, with the angles of the main stem usually copiously pubescent and the sides rarely with a few small hairs. The leaves are variable in size, shape, and pubescence.
