This tall-stemmed Mint usually grows to about 2 foot 6 inches tall.
Its scent has a definite hint of Strawberry,
- though curiously there are people who cannot detect this scent!
My commiserations to you if you are one of these! -
Like all mints this is a hardy, fragrant perennial with a vigorous, not to say rampant, growth habit!
Best grown in a pot or container as left "free-range "
Mints will soon overpower most gardens.
Mints like a moist rich soil in at least partial shade as they are prone to baking in full noon-day sun.
It can be used in Summer Drinks, Fruit Salads and Tisanes (Teas). Not to mention 'Pimms' and the like!
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.
