Calamintha General Information:

Calaminthas are carefree and attractive to honeybees and butterflies. The compact foliage looks good in containers and along pathways and produces a nice show into fall. Its consistent presence and quiet charm have endeared this plant to us.

Calamintha Plant Care:

Cut back to 6 in fall when foliage declines, or in spring. Divide in early spring. Self sows prolifically so remove spent flower heads to prevent seedlings. Soil should be moist.
