Nepitella

Calamintha nepeta

Savory Mediterranean herb used in Italian cuisine, also known as calamint, relatively unknown here in the United States. Unusual but inviting flavor, like a mix of mint, basil, oregano, thyme and licorice; traditionally used to flavor meats, soups, stews along with mushroom, tomato, potato dishes. Great border or container plant with 12” mounds of oregano-like leaves. Lavender pink tubular flower spikes arrive later in the summer, lasting well into fall; attractive both in an herb and flower garden.

Flavorful

Love this hardy little herb, it gets used in any tomato based sauce- sprinkle on top of baked meatballs in a tomato sauce.

Something different

I have this growing in my aerogarden in the kitchen. It is a beautiful plant when it starts to flower. It is a fairly good producer. I would like to hear what recipes others are using it in. I make pizza from scratch and the mint doesn't go well with the spicy meat toppings I use.
