Calamintha nepeta

Calamintha nepeta
Common name nepitella
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers lavender (summer-fall)
Size 2'
Light full sun
Cultural notes not fussy
From seed self-seeds in our garden

Fragrant foliage - lots of small leaves make for a nice filler plant. Flowers are surprisingly intricate when viewed up close.


We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
