Calamintha grandiflora ‘Variegata’ forms upright, bushy mounds of soft green and creamy white variegated leaves, maintaining their variegation until early fall. Blooms are complimented by clusters of dark pink flowers, studded on short spikes among the leaves that grow early in the summer.
Calamintha ‘Variegata’ is a close cousin to other garden mints, hence its common name of “Calamint” and is attractive to a wide variety of pollinators, such as butterflies or bees. Calamintha ‘Variegata’ tends to spread out from wherever it is planted and prefers light shade with medium to moist soil. Deer resistant and fragrant foliage make it a great choice for any border garden.
