Mint Bush: Prostanthera rotundifolia


The Australian mint bushes really smell far superior to regular mint, not as sweet a bit more citric.

Prostanthera rotundifolia is the round leaf species, I love a round leaf, and it grows quickly and is highly perfumed. This is an example of it used to great a hedge, as it does grow fast you can see it hedges quite well, it would be a welcoming entrance  planting to walk through everyday to get to your front door. I’ve found Prostantheras’ to be very forgiving of quite heavy shade however they can be a bit finicky if it is hot and wet.

    Hi Linda,

    That depends on what sort of brown leaves are they brownish black and soft or dry and brittle?

    Best Wishes,
