The silver green downy leaves mean this mint is not used much in cooking though it does make a refreshing tea. It is, however, very ornamental and is widely used by flower arrangers. In late summer the short spikes of pale mauve flowers contrasting against the silver grey leaves look attractive in arrangements.

Both the flowers and leaves are edible.

We recommend growing all mints in pots or containers as they can quickly become invasive in the right conditions. We do grow several varieties in the ground ourselves and allow them to wander where they want (within reason). They give a wonderful aroma where they have spread into the lawn when walking on it & during mowing.

Silver Mint grows best in damp conditions in full sun or partial shade however it will grow in most conditions.

A hardy plant which should survive normal winter conditions outside, especially with protection from the hardest frosts. If grown in pots it is recommended to place in a sheltered position for the winter.
