A marvellous blue bee attraction that’s what this compact Calamintha from seed will create in the garden! Its large, striking, purple-blue flowers are produced in profusion on upright spikes above the foliage. This first-year flowering perennial flowers within 12 weeks from a spring sowing and will bring blue to the garden all summer long. The sweet, mint smell of the fresh, mid-green foliage attracts butterflies and bees. This outstanding garden performer makes a great filler in sunny borders, but can also be used as a superb edging for walks. Planted in pots, this beauty brings both colour and fragrance to the patio
