Calamint is a perennial herb and a member of the mint family. Great for the scented garden, it also attracts the attention of the local bee population.

This low-growing herb has pleasant mint-scented leaves, and its tiny but profuse white or pale lilac flowers appear in late summer to fall.

Calamint loves sunny spots, and although small in stature, it will spread.
