not water mint

Posted: 16/09/2015 at 20:13

Pobably won't make it by my pond any more than the other one did. The high and low tide marks are too extreme for anything other than brutes like Iris pseudocorus, sedge, reeds, typha, meadowsweet and caltha. Though the occasional water plantain survives

Hard to describe a smell fidget. strong herb, not mint

It looks like the one in your link Jo.

I was given this as water mint but it doesn't look like the water mint I've grown in the past, th leaves look more like hyssop.. It's been grown in water and arrived in a bucket of water.

I googled water mint and that looked as I expected, not like this. The smell is strongly aoromatic but not really minty

Any ideas


ID and renovation advice please

I'd go for something that doesn't get tall even if not pruned. Trees have a lovely shape naturally, lost once the saw is brought out

white crocosmia

I don't think they come in white. If you google white crocosmia images some superficially similar plants come up, but if you visit the site they are taken from they are Crinum and Watsonia

Plant ID please

It goes out of focus when enlarged but not an alchemilla or a potentilla. 

Not the same plant as OP
