White woolly, rounded 1 in. leaves and furry stems, soft as chamois, steal the show here. Though the tiny white blooms are insignificant and should be sheared off to maintain an appealing bushy, yet compact form, Ballota sparkles against deep greens and bronzes. Acquiescent to drought, salt spray and high winds, it begs good drainage and protection from excessive winter wet. This illuminated Mediterranean mint makes an excellent choice for borders, banks and rock gardens and was once prescribed by Dioscorides as an antidote for the bite of a mad dog.
Blooms July – August.
Size: 18" high x 18" wide.
