A delightful mint with a beautiful purply / black leaf, especially good for making tea as it is said to be stronger than the white variety.

This peppermint is a must for any herb garden just because it looks so pretty (but don’t forget to grow it in a container even if you sink it into the ground so it doesn’t take over).

Native to Tasmania so likes a sunny position.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
