CALAMINTHA nepeta ssp. nepeta

Lesser Calamint
height: 12-16″
zone: 5
habit: clump

Tiny, barely light blue-white flowers cover the bushy habit. Leaves carry a mint scent. A perfect choice for attracting pollinators since it blooms from early summer until frost.  Once established, it can tolerate hot and dry conditions. Trim plants by half in late summer if the foliage begins to look worn. Perfect for rock garden enthusiasts and herb gardens. 2021 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year™
