Any perennial with the staying power of calamint and its airy beauty deserves accolades from more than the bees. From sunrise to sunset, from June through frost, the airy racemes of tiny, white-lipped flowers attract a motley crew of nectar seekers.
Standing knee-high, the small, bushy beauty is delicate but wiry, standing up to any kind of weather, soldiering through rain, overbearing sun, muggy air and clear fall days without a hint of disease or pest problems.
It softens a border as well - better than its temperamental look-alike, baby's breath, and calamint is aromatic to boot. (Source: North Creek Nurseries)
