Description

Calamintha typically forms a dense, indefinitely spreading, foliage mat with upright leafy flowering stems rising to 12-18” tall. Gray-green leaves (to 3/4” long) are very fragrant when crushed. Prefers evenly moist soils, but tolerates some drought. Tolerates light shade in the afternoon. May spread in the garden by rhizomes and/or self-seeding to form an interesting ground cover.  Shear or cut back plants after flowering to tidy the planting, to remove unsightly foliage and/or to prevent any unwanted self-seeding.
