Calamintha nepeta is a hardy perennial that produces a continuous supply of gorgeous tiny flowers with mauve nectar guides to direct bees. My plants flower abundantly from mid June until November. I’ve never once deadheaded my plants; I just leave them alone. Calamintha nepeta is incredibly drought tolerant; it’s a fantastic container plant and makes a superb plant for a sunny border.
