Calamintha grandiflora ‘Variegata’


Variegated Calamint

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.108.100


Calamints are close cousins to the garden mint, but without the nasty spreading habit and are native to Europe and the Middle East. This selection forms an upright, bushy mound of soft green, oval-shaped leaves, splashed with creamy-white. Pleasantly fragrant. Rose-pink flowers are studded on short spikes among the leaves in midsummer. This will slowly spread to form a small patch. Attractive to butterflies. Useful towards the front of the border, in a woodland setting among Hosta or ferns. Also attractive in mixed containers. Remove any all-green shoots as soon as they are noticed, since this plant has a tendency to revert.
