Every time I see a picture I covet. I was thinking of plunking it into a sand bed.

Yes, I've looked it up on google and found a few images. I don't know it's common name. I've never seen it growing but I just happen to like lots of different members of the mint family and I figure, ooh, goody, another mint... really like the color, that sort of dusty pink.

Thanks, Matt. I guess I didn't look hard enough. I'm going to give it a try next year.
