Nepeta

Calamintha Marvelette Blue

Marvalette Blue is a tidy low growing mint with masses of purple-blue flowers through Summer and early Fall months. Ideal for garden borders and pathways, the fragrant minty aroma adds sweetness to any garden. Drought and dry soil tolerant, Marvalette is easy to grow and the free flowering habit is a boon to pollinators. The Deer and Rabbits are sure to pass on by.

Plant in areas of full sun with a touch of afternoon shade where possible. Marvelette is not terribly picky about the soil conditions and sloping banks or other odd garden spots are usually the perfect place for this easy keeper.
