The Calamintha Nepeta combines fragrance and flowers for a staple garden plant that ticks all the boxes. Of course, as the name would suggest this plant has a mint scent to it, with a hint of oregano. It's easy to care for and its leaves boast an impressive array of uses - from culinary to medicinal, and they also work well in potpourris.
The white flowers on this plant not only look beautiful, but will attract bees and other pollinators to your garden.
The Calamintha Nepeta will be happiest in a sunny location in your garden and with well-drained soil. We recommend planting in a pot, flowerbed or border - in particular, a front border where you can make the most of its ability to spread and create a carpet like effect.
