Water Spearmint Preslia Cervina - 9cm Pot x 3

Mentha Aquatica is a dainty marginal and pondside plant with slender leaves and powdery blue flowers. The flowers are born in alluring clusters around the stems, and give off a delicate spearmint scent when brushed. The pleasant foliage of Preslia Cervina can be used in the same way as other mints, and the attractive flowers are a favourite with flying pond insects, butterflies and bees. This vigorous marginal plant will quickly establish itself in shallow water or moist ground.
