Calamintha

Calamint

Our floriferous Calamintha selections feature tiny 2-lipped blooms on long cymes and round mint-scented leaves with toothed margins. Undeterred by heat, drought or meddlesome deer, this species should be ensconced along well-drained pathways or steps to easily savor its pleasant fragrance.

With a light-on-its-feet stance, this resilient new cultivar is a vast improvement over the species, boasting nonstop bloom and a tidy mounding habit that never flops. Small softly green, mint-scented leaves bolster large terminal spires of crisp white flowers from June ‘til the first frost. Undeterred by heat, drought or meddlesome deer, ‘Montrose White’s fine textured good looks are just right for an herb planting, a mixed border or a cottage garden.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 12"–15" high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
