Quick Overview:

A beautiful variegated peppermint with bright green leaves that are mottled with cream; violet flowers rise above in a mid summer show of color; great container plant and it is suggested that planting within a pot in the ground will curtail invasiveness


Variegated Peppermint features bold spikes of violet flowers rising above the foliage in mid summer. It's attractive fragrant pointy leaves remain green in color with showy creamy white variegation throughout the season. Variegated Peppermint is an herbaceous perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
