Calamintha nepeta subsp. nepeta - Lesser Catmint from Pleasant Run Nursery

Calamintha nepeta subsp. nepeta

Catmint - Lesser

Lesser Calamint is a blooming powerhouse, covered with delicate light blue flowers from June to October. The foliage is attractively aromatic, releasing a minty scent when touched. This hard-working perennial is a reliable source of nectar for butterflies and bees, so it’s always busy with insect life. Calamintha performs best in well-drained sites with good air flow, and is neatened up by a haircut in mid-summer. An excellent filler around leggier perennials, and the 2021 Perennial Plant of the Year.
