Other Info: Species Tomentosum Peppermint - Cultivar Chocolate Mint. Excellent in large containers, hanging baskets and ideal ground cover during summer months. If growing inside, at maturity requires a large pot or container. Thin out centre and underneath to prevent leaf debris build up.
Annie and Guy's Comments: Both Tomentosum Chocolate Mint and Peppermint make large plants very quickly. Mint Chocolate's peppermint fragrance is more subtle than Peppermint although both are distinctly minty. Excellent for herbal teas - infuse the leaves in hot water for a few minutes. Mint tea is relaxing, soothing, calms the nervous system and aids sleep.
**Contrary to some of our Customers wishful thinking it does not smell or taste of chocolate!** The chocolate refers to the dark splodge on the leaves. Sorry to disappoint all chocoholics!
