A wonderfully flavourful mint with large rounded and slightly furry leaves, with pale purple flowers. Stronger scent and flavour than the similar apple mint.
Prefers a sunny rich site, but will grow almost anywhere. To prevent it taking over, plant in a container, or in a bottomless bucket sunk into the ground - so that the roots can go downwards but not sideways.
Use the leaves to make tea or mint sauce or shred them finely to add to salads.
