Seed collection from Calamintha georgiana / Georgia Basil?

Macon, GA(Zone 8a)

Greetings all -

Does anyone have experience collecting / germinating seeds from the South East native Calamintha georgiana? I bought one at a native plant sale and would like to have a few more!

I do not - tho I would expect it would do the job itself if surrounding conditions were met, ours tend to do the job best when they do it themselves. I wish you luck tho

Calamintha, like most members of the mint family, is most easily propagated by rooting cuttings.

Hi, root endings from plant spreading is a good way to start more.
If you are interested in joining a garden club, Northwoods is a very good one. Also, I am chair for the butterfly habitat at Lake Tobosofkee... d-mail me if you are interested.
