Mentha x piperita citrata
Like all mints this is a hardy, fragrant perennial with a vigorous,
not to say rampant, growth habit!
Best grown in a pot as left free-range
will soon overpower most gardens.
Mints like a moist rich soil in at least partial shade
as they are prone to baking in full sun.
This variety,with its slightly exotic flavour
is used in stir-fries and Thai cooking.
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item , where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
