Meehania cordata is a delightful native to alkaline soils that naturally resides from southwest PA to the NC mountains. Meehania cordata makes a wonderful evergreen groundcover in the woodland garden with dark green cordate leaves adorning the spreading stems, which in turn are topped in late spring (late May in NC) with 5" tall spikes of blue-lavender, skullcap-like flowers. Although Meehan's wood mint prefers slightly moist soil, it is also very drought tolerant. We have seen much better flowering when meehania is grown with good morning sun. Meehania is named for the late PA botanist, Thomas Meehan.
