Calamintha

Calamintha produces masses of tiny white flowers throughout the summer. The plant grows to about knee high and fills spaces nicely. Use Calamintha to underplant companions in the garden that tend to be taller or leggy. You will love the delicate, whimsey habit of Calamintha along with the constant minty fragrance from even the lightest breeze.
