Calamints are close cousins to the garden mint, but without the nasty spreading habit. This selection forms a perfect mound of mint-scented leaves, absolutely smothered by small, very pale lilac flowers from midsummer until frost. Highly rated as an edging or rock garden plant with an extremely long season of interest. A good choice also for mixed containers. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. In regions with humid summers this sometimes benefits from a hard clip back in August, to rejuvenate the leaves. Tolerates both dry and moist soils. Attractive to butterflies.Chosen as the 2021 Perennial Plant of the Year by The Perennial Plant Association.
