This tough drought resistant Mint family relative is a long flowering selection, forming a compact bush of liquorice/mint scented green leaves, featuring wands of dusky violet-blue flowers over many months from summer to autumn. Both the flowers and leaves are edible and fun to sprinkle into salads.
The nursery is set in the small mountain village of Blackwood, Victoria, which is a one hours drive west of Melbourne. The climate in Blackwood is warm in summer, and cool in winter, mild temperate, which allows us to grow a wide range of trees, shrubs, conifers, Rhododendrons and flowering perennials and is surrounded by gardens and can be enjoyed by nursery visitors.
