Mint Orange

Mint Orange

  • Features: Very easy to grow, and will spread readily. Leaves are bright to dark green. Has a citrus aroma and flavour, but is considerably spicier and stronger than most mints.
  • Light: Plant in full sun.
  • Soil and water: Best in moist, nutrient rich soil. Keep well watered.
  • Spacing: Space 45-60cm (18-24") apart.
  • Height: Grows 30-60cm (12-24") in height.
  • Growing tips: Pinch back to keep the plant growing evenly.
  • Garden use: Best in containers, as it spreads quickly. Can be used as an herb ground cover.
  • Culinary use: Used in many Middle Eastern salads and Thai dishes. Dried leaves can be used for tea.
A great plant for a bird or butterfly garden, since these creatures are very attracted to mint.
