I have had success with this plant here in southern Montana, I have found it growing in the wild, and I grow it in my garden. It is seperated easily into multiple plants that will grow and spread quickly. I grow a genetic strain of lemon mint that produces bright red flowers instead of purple. This red lemon mint was collected from northern Montana. The plants I observed in the wild had purple flowers. If anyone would some of these plants with red flowers feel free to contact my account and we might be able to trade, depending on the time of year and the plants growing season.

Beautiful wild flower in Central Texas that blooms around late May to early June, this year it coincided with Indian Blanket, a lovely combination. Reseeds copiously and the blooms are long lasting. Contrary to the water note in the database, Horsemints are blooming all around the pasture where I live and have had no water in weeks. The plants in my garden are watered every 4 or 5 days, but the soil is not "kept moist".
