A compact, perennial herb with mauve flowers in summer and deep-green leaves smelling and tasting of berries and mint.
Mint needs well drained soil with plenty of summer water. Given these conditions they can run away so should be planted where this is desired, or in large pots.
Finely chop leaves and use them in sauces and drizzles for deserts, steep whole leaves in boiling water to create a refreshing tea. Make strong tea then mix with chilled soda water for a tasty summer drink. Use sprigs as garnish for deserts, salads and cocktails.
