A total profusion of bloom over a looong season is just the first two reasons to grow this exciting “Mountain Mint."  DROUGHT TOLERENT, DEER RESISTANT & highly scented of peppermint - ‘Blue Cloud’ also creates a bushy compact 15” x 15” form clothed in tiny grey-green foliage, fitting in well with any garden style from formal to cottagey. Living up to its name, ‘Blue Cloud’ covers itself from June-October with lovely bright light blue flowers, & is an irresistible invitation to all the bees in the neighborhood. Beautiful in the foreground of roses, or cascading over steps & pathways. Bonus feature: it makes a pleasant tea!  Best appearance in rich, well drained soil & average water. Cut back to 5” tall in Winter.
