Evergreen shrub with aromatic foliage. growing to about 1 or 2m in height and width. Small, ovate green leaves with a powerful aroma of mint when crushed. Masses of purple flowers in high summer. Happy in any well drained soil, including both sandy and chalky conditions. Half-hardy, and not tolerant of being frozen, so best kept in a pot that is overwintered in a frost-free environment.
