Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

An excellent plant for drought prone areas, Calamintha features a long-flowering season, nectar rich blooms and aromatic foliage. From midsummer to the end of autumn, Calamintha nepeta produces loose sprays of small lilac flowers above bushy clumps of downy, grey-green foliage with a minty aroma. The leaves can be used as a culinary herb or for herbal teas. Excellent as a ground cover perennial where its informal habit will soften borders edges and attract a wealth of beneficial insects. Height: 45cm (18in). Spread: 60cm (24in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Calamintha in a sunny position on any moist but well drained soil. Calamintha grows well on neutral or alkaline soils making it a useful plant for chalky areas. Avoid planting in acid soils.
Feed and water regularly until Calamintha is fully established. Once established it will need little aftercare except for cutting back the faded flower stems in autumn.
