Calamint is a member of the mint family, with variegated, fragrant foliage and larger flowers. This particular variety blooms almost continuously throughout the warm weather. With its tolerance for light shade, it will keep blooming even if the weather is cloudy for an extended period of time. If anything, it seems to thrive on rainy, cool weather. So, if you live in Vermont, this is your plant! My new favorite summer drink is iced green tea with mint.
