Penny Royal Mentha Pulegium - 9cm Pot x 3

Mentha Pulegium is a native British pond plant, the smallest of the mints. This creeping plant has small, elliptical leaves which grow in pairs on opposite sides of the stems, which are tightly-packed with pinkish flowers. The pleasant deep foliage of Mentha Aquatica can be used in the same way as other mints, and the flowers attract flying pond insects, butterflies and bees. It also gives off a lovely spearmint aroma when brushed.
