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.
