detailed seed-starting info below

Diminutive mint relative, with tiny scalloped leaves and white flowers. I grew it to put in the rock garden, but I'll have to be careful with placement, because it reportedly prefers moist soil, while the well-drained soil in our rock garden dries up quickly. Still, the rock garden is the only place to show off such a small plant in our garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
