Mentha piperita cv. Lavender Mint

Lavender Mint is one of the red-stemmed mints like Peppermint. It has wonderful floral overtones that add a luscious touch to any cup of tea. Red-stemmed mints or Mentha piperitas can be used fresh but are more often used dried. We have had a few chefs tell us they prefer this variety to other Mentha piperitas.

Like all mints, Lavender  Mint, should be confined to a pot. it is always wisest to grow each mint in its own pot so they do not over take and destroy one another. Mints grow better in pots with lots of surface area rather than lots of depth. Our 20 inch Oval Planter makes a great mint pot, at least for the first year. After that, your mint will need to be divided and repotted with fresh soil each spring.

Lavender Mint makes a great addition to our Gourmet Herb Garden Six Pack. It would also make a great addition to one of our Tea Herb Garden Six Packs.
