The 2021 Perennial Plant of The Year: Calamintha Nepeta Subsp. Nepeta

January 15, 2021 Perennial Plant Association

Like a cloud of confetti, tiny white flowers (sometimes touched with pale blue) appear from early summer to fall. Undemanding and dependable, calamint provides the perfect foil for other summer bloomers and foliage. This full-sun perennial has a low mounding or bushy habit, ideal for the front of the border, rock gardens, and more.
