The 2021 Perennial Plant Association's Perennial Plant of the Year®
Tough and durable yet refined, this wiry stemmed, mounding selection may be the landscape workhorse you've been searching for. Calamint thrives in full sun and is extremely drought tolerant meaning it will look fresh and inviting even in the roughest of soil conditions but it really shines as a front of the border plant in even the most formal of gardens. Its soft, aromatic foliage along with its rounded form always looks fresh but mid-summer is when Calamint comes alive with drifts of dainty lavender and white flowers that keep on blooming from August right on until frost and even beyond! It's easy to be successful with this plant and you'll look like a gardening genius planting it en masse.
