CONDITIONS: Love full sun
WATER: low needs, drought-tolerant
BLOOM TIME: it's long mid to late summer sometimes into Fall
TWO THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT: It's also called hummingbird mint because hummingbirds (and birds/butterflies/insects all) love it. They look great en masse but i have found that some are just a stunning surprise mixed in and among other plants and grasses. The variety called 'just peachy' is divine because it is truly as delicate and lovely as a flower can get. Also check out hybrid cultivars 'Blue Fortune' and 'Black Adder'.
LOOKS GREAT WITH: Achillea, Salvia, Nepeta
