2022 Wildflower of the Year

downy woodmint

We are excited to share downy woodmint (Blephilia ciliata), a lovely native perennial in the mint family, as the 2022 Wildflower of the Year. Similar in appearance to its mint family relatives like bee balms (Monarda spp.), downy woodmint is a clump-forming perennial up to two feet tall, but it spreads slowly and won’t become aggressive like other mint species sometimes do.
