Mentha arvensis (Banana mint)

Mentha arvensis (Banana mint)

Yes it does actually smell like banana, more like the Laffy Taffy candy than the fresh fruit. Banana mint is a very charming petite mint growing to about a foot high and spreading. The leaves are small, light green, and fuzzy, and delightful added fresh to fruit salads. A really beauty when it blooms, purple-blue, round blossoms are very attractive to bees and butterflies. This is a shorter groundcover sort of mint that is not as aggressive as other mints.
