Mint, Lemon (Mentha x piperita f. citrata ‘Lemon’)

Mint, Lemon – Mentha x piperita f. citrata ‘Lemon’

Mint, Lemon – Mentha x piperita f. citrata ‘Lemon’ is a hardy perennial. This tangy mint has aromatic leaves with a delicious lemon fragrance. This zesty mint also has purple flowers in summer that are attractive to bees and pollinators.

Lemon mint is a great culinary herb as the leaves blend really well with summer fruit salads, jellies and cordials. Also makes a great mint tea with a difference! Try in a mint sauce or pesto.

As with all mints it is a vigorous grower. It will grow quite happily in a container where it can’t be too boisterous next to other plants!
