This spreading mint has aromatic, lance-shaped to oblong foliage. It bears cylindrical spikes of pink, lilac or white flowers, which are very attractive to butterflies. These plants are disease and rust resistant. They like lots of sun and water, but are very invasive and are best grown in containers. They are hardy and will die back to ground in winter. Top dress with compost in autumn if the plants are not lifted annually.
