Description

Mentha x smithiana is a native of Europe, but has been naturalised worldwide. This hardy perennial is essentially a culinary herb used in sauces to complement meats (mint sauce with lamb), soups, salads, vegetable dishes, sweet dishes and drinks. The aromatic minty taste of red mint makes it an excellent choice for culinary use, and the red-tipped dark green/purplish leaves, which appear on red stems, are an excellent garnish.
