Also known as the Australian Mint Bush. They are a narrow, bushy shrub with grey-green, aromatic foliage that has a strong, sweet minty scent. Produces a spectacular mass of mauve-purple flowers which smother the bush in spring. May be grown in full sun or partial shade where soils are average to fertile and free-draining. Tolerates dry conditions once established and they are suitable for growing in coastal locations. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape. Grows to about 1.5m x 1m.
