P. tomentosum (referred to as tomentosum peppermint)
Scent/aroma: strong peppermint
Leaf: grey/green to mid green, soft and feel like velvet to the touch, medium to large. New leaves tend to be crinkly and extra grey but unfurl with age and turn a darker green and become a flatter shape. Underside remains grey resulting in a complimentary 2- tone colour way to the leaves.
Flower: creamy white/mauve with purple feathering to upper petals, small
Growing Habit: semi-branching and sprawling habit, makes a very large plant, Ht. 18" to 24" x 36" spread. We have 2 very large pots that are in excess of 4ft across! Makes a good ground cover plant during the summer months and will establish in all but the shadiest of spots. Too hot an area in the garden is not ideal, prefers some shade.
Other Info: Species. Tomentosum is Latin for densely woolly with matted hairs and the covering of ‘wool’ helps to keep the plant cool and shaded and also helps to collect drops of moisture.Being as Tomentosum Peppermint is native to South Africa, with often very hot seasons, this is a handy survival mechanism.
Annie and Guy's Comments: Forget buying herbal teas, make your own - infuse the leaves from P. tomentosum peppermint just as you would an ordinary teabag. Drink a cup of peppermint tea before bedtime for a good night's sleep or at any time of the day to relax or to destress. This versatile and very large plant when mature has a multitude of uses. Great value.
Top Tip - We would recommend growing Tomentosum Peppermint in between other scenteds as the strong peppermint perfume tends to help with minimising pests.
