Peppermint Geranium

Pelargonium tometosum

Peppermint-scented geranium is truly a marvel. Wonderfully soft and velvety large leaves emit an aroma that is truly minty. It sprawls and creates an effective cover for the ground, and would also be ideal for hanging over a wall, or growing up a tree or rock. The little white flowers can be used as a fragrant garnish, and leaves can be used to flavour home-made ice cream!
