About Nepitella Seedling

Nepitella, also known as Calamint, is a member of the mint family. This traditional Italian herb grows wild in Tuscany, and its flavor is complex: refreshingly minty, with savory undertones of basil and oregano. Nepitella's unique flavor makes it an enjoyable and versatile addition to your home's herb garden. 

  • Your seedling will be between 4 and 10 inches tall. 
  • With your seedling, you'll receive access to our guide to planting, caring for, and harvesting from your plant.


  • Was used as a digestive aid and a treatment for insomnia during Medieval times; it is used today in herbal teas. 
  • Pairs well with earthy flavors, such as mushroom, artichoke, cream, or a fatty cut of meat (Its flavor is strong, so a few leaves go a long way!)
  • Sprouts pale pink-purple or white flowers at maturity that taste just as herbaceous as its leaves.
