Montrose White Dwarf Calamint

Calamintha nepeta 'Montrose White'

This compact, award-winning selection offers a prolific display of tiny white flowers on neat, well branched plants. Foliage has a pleasing mint-like fragrance. Planted in a sunny location with well-drained soil, this hummingbird and pollinator-friendly plant thrives with little care and does not reseed, resulting in a longer bloom season. A great choice for borders and containers.
There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden . Learn More
