Margarita Mint Plant
Lime-scented leaves with bronzed edges and small lilac purple flowers midsummer. Perennial that spreads by runners, not rhizomes. Excellent in margaritas, mixed drinks, and as a garnish.
Aromatic and easy. Good for tea and potpourri. The flowers attract butterflies; however, the flavor changes once flowers appear. Spreads, in some cases aggressively.
