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.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
