Â Water Mint (Mentha Aquatica) native Shallow water plant
Water Mint (Mentha Aquatica) is a native shallow water plant. It has a distinctive mint smell and produces a profusion of lilac coloured flowers in ball like clusters. Is happy in sun or part shade.
Care â€“ this is a very vigorous pool edge plant which, when in flower in a large pool situation and having spread to form a large clump, is quite spectacular. Not recommended for small pool unless you can adequately contain it.
Height to 60cm ( 2 ft )
Will grow in moist soil or in water to a depth of 15cm ( 6 ins ).
We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.
Product Code: M0650We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
