Mentha suaveolensAs the name implies, Apple Mint has an apple scent with a sweet flavour. In ideal growing conditions, it can reach 60cm high. Apple Mints have woolly stems, fragrant serrated leaves and flower spikes that bear white or light pink flowers beginning in late summer/early autumn. Float fresh leaves in refreshing summer drinks such or as a tea in cooler months.
Keep Applemint confined to a large pot or it'll become invasive. It prefers a semi shaded position but will grow in full sun provided it recieves enough water.
