These delightful mint leaves can be picked throughout the entire growing season and can be planted outdoors or in a greenhouse. Unlike Peppermint they do not become overgrown. The mint reaches about 90-100 cm in height, but can be reduced by cutting. The robust perennials are well suited for perennial borders or for larger baskets and pots. The delicate lilac flower heads look very pleasing. A few flakes give strawberries, ice cream, jam, fruit or mixed drinks an exquisite flourish. The aroma is pleasantly fresh. You can also dry the leaves and prepare a wholesome herbal tea from them. The young leaves and shoots have an excellent taste and are perfect for cooking. The hardy plants can survive the winter with a little bit of protection from the elements.
