 Growing in loose colonies in areas of filtered light throughout the property are these members of the mint family. The plants are smaller than the Crimson Bee-Balm or the Wild Bergamot.  The white flowers resemble Wild Bergamot in shape and are a true white.  The leaves have a more pronounced mint taste than the bee balms, and when dried they can be used as tea.
