Basil Mint ~ Mentha x piperita f. citrata ‘Basil’
Be dazzled by Basil mint… a hardy perennial that likes full sun or partial shade. Like other mints this is a spreader so plant in a pot if this is going to be a problem for you.
The leaves make a wonderful pesto through summer and winter so it doesn’t get much of a chance to spread in my garden!
P.s. My mother plant was gifted to me by Diana Noonan, a New Zealand writer based on the Caitlins Coast (apparently one of my photos was used in Kiwi Gardener magazine, I never saw it!)
