Lime mint is a beautiful garden plant, with smooth, deep green leaves with a hint of purple, and reddish purple stems. Very upright, with yummy edible purple flowers, this is a lovely mint for a large pot, and always a surprise when you taste it. The ultimate tea plant, it is also great for the 'mixologist', and bar tenders can usually match it up with a number of adult libations for a fun twist. Lime mint is also delicious with melons and in sorbets. Like all mints, it can be very invasive!
