Silver Mint (Mentha longifolia silver-leaved) Herb Plant 9 cm pot


Silver Mint is a native of Europe, but has been naturalised worldwide. The silvery-green downy leaves of this spreading perennial mean it is more of an ornamental than culinary plant, but the leaves still have that distinctive menthol flavour. Widely used in flower arranging when flowering in late summer.

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.

Herb Uses

variegated Silver mint will  grow to 45-60cm tall. It is a favourite with flower arrangers producing mauve flowers in August / September.
