FlowerKisser™ Arizona Beauty Coyote Mint (Monardella) has flowers and foliage with a very minty scent when brushed or handled. This sweetly scented native groundcover has lavender-pink puffball shaped flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Collected by founder and chief horticulturist David Salman, this selection was found in the east-central mountains of Arizona, growing around and under Ponderosa pine. Normally this species is sub-alpine, but this lower elevation form (8,500 ft.) is much more growable at middle elevations throughout the western US. Give it some afternoon shade where day temperatures are hot. It makes a wonderful companion plant for other smaller growing perennials like Ornamental Oregano, Prairie Clover (Dalea purpureum) and Dark Violet Skullcap (Scutellaria).
Plants in the new FlowerKisser™ brand have been selected by High Country Gardens Chief Horticulturist David Salman. These new perennial introductions are particularly nectar-rich and attract many pollinators, including honey bees, native bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
