White Water Spearmint (Mentha cervina ‘Alba’) Shallow water plant
White Water Spearmint (Mentha cervina ‘Alba’) Shallow water, marginal pond, plant. This aromatic spearmint has globular clusters of small white flowers from June to September and narrow, spear shaped, leaves. A member of the mint family, the white water spearmint will root easily in wet mud or shallow water. Similar in habit to the common variety but smaller and more compact. It will form clumps that are a great habitat for wildlife and its flowers are enjoyed by bees, butterflies and hoverflies.

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.
We 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.
