(aka: Clinopodium ashei) Calamintha ashei is a rare and threatened North American native, found in the sandy soils of southeastern Georgia and northern Florida, where it forms an 18" tall x 30" wide clump of woody stems adorned by small, dentate, grey-green fragrant leaves. In spring, the drought-tolerant Calamintha ashei is smothered with small mauvy-pink flowers which also occur sporadically through the summer and into fall. The flowers are a favorite of both bees and butterflies. Ashe's savory grows best in well-drained sandy soils, where it can avoid competition from nearby larger plants. Unfortunately, in the wild, their habitat is being steadily consumed by agricultural citrus production. When plants become old and very woody, it is best to start new plants from cuttings. Our plants are cutting-grown from an original clone from Tattnall County, GA.
