I have always just called this mountain mint and my question is not just about the identification but also about the behavior or bees and butterflies, they seem to find it almost intoxicating, and stumble and fall after feasting on it. These plants grow five to six feet tall in this area and are in mostly sunny areas but also partial shade.

    Hoary Mountain Mint. Bees and butterflies love them.
