(Showy Calamint, Large-flowered Calamint)
Herbaceous perennial native to the Mediterranean. Compact plant gives a neat appearance in formal herb gardens (can trim to shape) and adapts fine to the more flowing lines of the more naturalistic garden. The entire herb is sweetly aromatic--really a step above common catnip--and has an antiseptic, diaphoretic and expectorant influence. Plant prefers sun to part shade and mesic soils. Flowers large in comparison to the plant. Plant 1 to 2 feet apart.
