— 2021 Perennial Plant of the Year! —
Calamint is a delightful perennial plant. Overall, bushy in appearance with a slightly spreading form. Great for naturalized areas, or in landscaping beds. The foliage grows densely on the stems, giving the plant a nice full appearance. The leaves are grey-green in color. The leaves emit a nice fragrance when brushed or crushed. Small, tubular light lavender to white flowers grow on the stems. They bloom over a long season, from June through September. The flowers are quite attractive to bees.
Calamintha nepeta grows to a height of 12 to 18 inches, with a spread of 18 to 24 inches. It is recommended for USDA climate zones 5 to 7. Calamint tends to grow best in full sunlight. It does best with average amounts of moisture in well drained soils. Once established, it can do quite well in dryer conditions. It is not known to have any particular disease or insect issues.
