Mint (Black Peppermint)
Mentha x piperita. This mint has purple-brown leaves. From August to October pretty pink flowers are borne. It is especially good for making tea as it is said to be stronger than the white variety, but also makes a good addition to salads or for flavouring sweets or ice cream. Vigorous growth. Recommended for pot growing due to self seeding.
Grow in a sunny position. It will reach a height of 50cm.
