Variegated Peppermint
Mentha x piperita piperita 'Variegata'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Beverage/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 4-9)
With its attractive dark green leaves splashed with creamy white, this plant is the picture of cool tranquility in the summer garden. A beautiful mint for container gardens, the glossy green and white foliage will revert to green unless green-only branches are quickly removed. Its strong peppermint smell makes it pleasant to brush against as you pass, or to sit beside on the patio. Garnish your cup of coffee with one or two leaves for a refreshing change. Variegated mint is very hardy, thrives in moist soil and is a lovely addition to any garden where it can receive full or part sun. To keep mint’s overly-friendly tendencies in check in the mixed border, be sure and contain it in a large pot or bottomless bucket sunk into the ground.
