Beach Mint
Mentha canadensis
Uses: Culinary/Beverage Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 4-9)
This mint was discovered growing on a beach on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay in Ontario. In the middle of the sand this mint staked out its claim on the beach. Mints, of course, are supposed to grow in rich wet soils, not dry sand, and so we were quite staggered. Like an injured bird we brought it back to nurture in our greenhouses were it continued to surprise us because it chose not to follow the usual script for mints of unruly, rapacious growth. Instead it is a rather well-behaved mint, and to boot it sports a wonderful minty scent and flavour. Ht. 30cm/12".
