Mint, Curly - Mentha spicata var. crispa
Mentha spicata crispa is a native of Europe, but has been naturalised worldwide. This hardy perennial is essentially a culinary herb used in sauces to complement meats (mint sauce with lamb), soups, salads, vegetable dishes, sweet dishes and drinks. Curly mint has a spearmint flavour and the leaves are smaller than ordinalry spearmint, and very attractive - dark green with lighter green mottling and very curly edges - an excellent choice for garnish.
Mint will thrive anywhere, preferring moist partly shady areas, and are easy to grow from cuttings or replanting of runners. To control spread, this herb should be planted in sunken bottomless containers and kept well watered to ensure good leaf production.
Curly mint will produce small lilac flower spikes in summer, and grow 60cm tall.
