Monardella villosa
“Coyote Mint ”

Monardella villosa “Coyote Bush” Monardella villosa “Coyote Bush”

This coast range California native makes a nice 2’ x 2’ trailing groundcover for dry situations & besides being so pretty, its fuzzy grey-green foliage is extremely minty-scented, keeping the deer away! I’m happy to report it’s long blooming, too!The 1” lavender puff balls make their show July thru August, providing nectar for our fluttering friends. Cut back in Winter for compact appearance. Found in oak woodlands & chaparrell, this plant can grow in sand, clay, or serpentine soil and also does well on dry slopes. Spanish Californians used the leaves as a tea to treat sore throats. Deer resistant. Drought tolerant.
