Comments: Best selection for cooler climates. it is not well adapted to the Gulf coast. Does not like high humidity and has good powdery mildew and deer resistance. Foliage has minty odor when crushed and the flowers are fragrant and their nectar attracts bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. Flowers from late summer into late fall. Plants should be divided every 3-4 year, but perhaps sooner in the South where it is a rampart grower.
