Belonging to the mint family, horse mint has a lovely mint aroma. It is a popular plant for pollinator and native plant gardens. The pink to purple flowers are attractive to many pollinators, including butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Horse mint grows in many habitat types and is adaptable to different growing conditions, and although reasonably drought tolerant, it will look its best if it has some summer moisture. Deadheading can prolong the bloom time.
