Mentha suaveolens 'Variegata'

3rd September 2011

This is my best current guess at the name for this common variegated mint. I acknowledge that other people may have other opinions. (Does that cover all the bases?)
I wanted to grow it again - it has been a few years since I last got fed up with its constant invasion of new territory. Accepting that it is going to mingle with all its close neighbours, I have planted it next to Urtica dioica 'Brightstone Bitch' which behaves in the same way. The two leavy stems will mingle, one delightful and touchable the other less so.
Nobody who knows what they are doing could confuse them. Everybody else can take their chances.
