Biology

This perennial species flowers from July to October, and can spread by means of thin stems called 'rhizomes' that pass along the surface of the soil, from which new plants sprout and roots become established (1). This form of reproduction is known as 'vegetative reproduction'. Wood calamint can also reproduce by seeds; four small 'nutlets' (single-seeded fruits with a tough woody coat) are produced by each flower, these fall to the ground when they are ripe (1).
