Large grey green soft downy leaves. Lovely peppermint scent. Masses of small, white flowers. I grow this in my own garden every year in two very large containers or rather, it grows itself!
Introduced in 1790 by Masson.
Natural habitat includes mountainous areas and forest edges in South Western Cape Province.
Plants are supplied in a 6cm biodegradable pot. There is no need to remove this pot as roots will grow thorough it and the pot, which is made of fibre, will degrade harmlessly into the compost.
