Description: Calamints are close cousins to the garden mint, but without the nasty spreading habit. Highly rated as an edging or rock garden plant with an extremely long season. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. In regions with humid summers this sometimes benefits from a hard clip back in August, to rejuvenate the leaves. Tolerates both dry and moist soils. Attractive to butterflies. Deer Resistant.
