A compact and shapely small shrub which grows to around 70 centimetres high and wide. It has small and attractive shiny dark green foliage which compliments the purple throated white flowers. When crushed it gives off an aromatic minty fragrance. It flowers from summer through to autumn, and they are nectar rich. Likes a sunny to partly shaded position in moist and well drained soil. Very frost tolerant. Plant near paths so the foliage fragrance can be enjoyed. Tip prune if needed. Good for low hedging.
