Calamintha nepetoides

With compact mounds of tiny white flowers turning blue with age, catmint is a pretty little mint relative who should be placed where its delightfully fragrant foliage can be touched and brushed. Very long blooming. Bees and cats love it, deer don’t. Makes a wonderful herbal tea!
