A really beautiful mint grown for the very long spikes of mauve flowers (hence it's name) and silvery-grey leaves. It has less flavour than true culinary mints, but is excellent for insects including butterflies and bees. Can be used for flower arranging. Prefers a sunny well drained site where it will spread rapidly. Best used for ornamental use.
