Macbridea caroliniana is an easy-to-grow, but very rare Southeast (NC, SC, GA) US native mint relative. This Federal Species of Concern (Global G2 rank) is found most often in sphagnum bog edges, open forested bottomlands, and savannas. Carolina bogmint is a deciduous perennial that forms low patches of upright 8" tall green stems, topped, starting for us in late July with lovely raspberry pink flowers. Our plants originated with the Georgia conservation program. As with all endangered and threatened plants, ex-situ conservation is critical, so grow, propagate, and share.
