A novel variegated form of the Mint Bush, this plant has strong visual and olfactory appeal. The dainty purple flowers appearing in spring contrast well with the downy soft variegated foliage. Place this somewhere in the garden where you can appreciate the refreshing, light scent emitted by the leaves. It also looks striking when planted next to dark foliage.
Prune lightly after flowering to maintain dense shape.
