Mentha longifolia 'Variegata' (Variegated Silver Mint) Herb Plant


Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Variegated Silver Mint (Mentha longifolia variegata) Herb plant 9 cm pot 

Variegated 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. Variegated Silver Mint is not as virulent as Silver Mint.

Herb Uses

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