Blephilia ciliata, commonly known as Pagoda or Downy Wood Mint, has a distinctive appeal with its tight clusters of pink-purple flowers stacked to resemble a pagoda. The attractive blooms, a pollinator favorite, are supported by downy-haired stems that reach 1′ high. Visually similar to adored Monardas, this Blephilia spreads by rhizomes from a central tap root to form clumps. Blooming June – July, Pagoda Mint can thrive in almost any medium to dry-soil garden that receives full to partial sun.
