Mint Family - Native Mints Of North America

spp species

Many species in the mint family are native to natural plant communities of North America. Many additional species have been introduced from Eurasia and elsewhere, especially species that are grown in agriculture or horticulture, and some of these have escaped from gardens and become naturalized in appropriate habitats in North America.

Some of the more interesting and attractive groups of native species include the skullcaps (Scutellaria spp.), physostegias (Physostegia spp.), hemp-nettles (Stachys spp.), sages (Salvia spp.), horse-mints or bergamots (Monarda spp.), bugle-weeds (Lycopus spp.), and true mints ( Mentha spp.).
