1Gal Container (Up to 0)
Butterfly Mint Bush, Monardella antonina (sounds better than San Antonio Hills Monardella) is a one foot perennial covered with balls of pale purple with some pink, being worked constantly by every butterfly in our valley. Sometimes two or three on each blossom. The foliage is gray-green with a good minty fragrance. If you use it for tea (excellent with Yerba Buena) use small amounts and do not steep long for it is strong. The flowering period is between July and Dec.. We have this planted right above a Diplacus longiflorus and next to the L.P. form of Salvia spathacea in a very showy mass of colors with Hummingbirds and Butterflies everywhere.
