Home Mojito Mint
Common Name: Mentha x villosa, Cuban mint
This variety is grown primarily for its less pungent, sweet flavoured foliage that is popular in drinks and as a food seasoning. This is a great container plant, and it is suggested that planting within a pot in the ground will curtail invasiveness. Small violet flowers appear by late spring or early summer.
It is clearly different from most other mints - the scent of this aromatic herb and flavour are agreeably mild and warm, not pungent nor overly sweet like other mints.
