Ginger Mint
Mentha arvensis 'Variegata’ (M. x gentillis)'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Beverage/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 6-9)
Heart-shapes leaves flecked with gold make this a spectacular ornamental mint. Its fruity taste carries a hint of ginger. The attractive plant brightens up the herb garden, while the leaves bring a refreshing flavour to the kitchen in fruit salads, with melon and with tomatoes. A few leaves will garnish any yogurt-based recipe beautifully. Infusions made by steeping fresh or dried leaves of ginger mint can be used to calm a nervous stomach or ease a headache. The plant is happy in moist soil with sun or part shade and will expand into the garden easily unless it is restrained in pots or bottomless buckets sunk into the garden bed. Ginger mint is well suited to container gardening, where it can decorate a patio or doorstep while offering its many benefits to the cuisine.
