Hairy Mint



Some botanists consider Hairy Mint just a sub-variety of Water Mint. There's not even any agreement on its scientific name.

There are also native American plants referred to as Hairy Mints: Hairy Wood Mint (Blephilia hirsuta) and Hairy Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum pilosum.)

For the classic "Hairy Mint", see Water Mint.
