Although rather large for most rock gardens, lesser calamint is a good plant for a dry sunny border as, once established, the plants are fairly drought tolerant - self-sown seedlings are particularly self-sufficient. The neat aromatic foliage and the long flowering season - from mid summer well into autumn - of its airy lilac flower spikes make it a very useful companion for plants such as penstemon, Artemisia schmidtiana 'Nana' and lavender which enjoy similar conditions.
