Calamint is a tough informal-looking groundcover that is covered with small fragrant white to lilac flowers from mid summer to early fall. The grayish-green delicate foliage has a minty fragrance which makes it deer and rabbit resistant. Leaves may be dried for potpourris or sachets. Pollinators flock to the blooms. Calamintha nepeta subsp. nepeta is a good addition to walls and rock gardens.
