Calamint

Like a flurry of snow in summer, this easy-to-grow, no maintenance perennial is absolutely covered in self-cleaning, white flowers for nearly the entire growing season. Bees and other pollinators are highly attracted to its blooms, but deer are deterred by its strongly mint-scented, shiny green foliage. Named by Mike Yanny.
