Perennial Plant Associations 2021 ‘Perennial Plant of the Year’. As magnificent as fireworks Calamint blooms bursting with small white, sometimes blue-tinged flowers from early summer through fall. This durable, pest free perennial is a must have! Sun loving, drought tolerant and a favorite of the pollinating insects Calamint boasts many desirable qualities.
