Calamintha nepeta subsp. nepeta

Nepeta features blue-green leaves that are highly fragrant when crushed or bruised. Expect an abundance of elegant white to lilac flowers that bloom in clusters from summer to mid-fall (June - September).

Plant in full sun with well drained soil. Can tolerate some drought once established, but prefers evenly moist soil. Benefits from cutting back after flowering to keep a tidy shape and prevent unwanted self-seeding. Hailing from the mint family, the leaves of this plant can be dried for potpourris. Nepeta is also very attractive to bees and other pollinators.

An excellent choice for those looking for a more formal country garden look. Perfect as a border plant, especially along paths and in herb gardens. Plant with Sedum, Asters and Hardy Geraniums as companions. 

Arrives to you in a quart-sized pot, as shown in photo 3.
