Mentha x niliaca.
Popular in Middle Eastern dishes, this upright mint has a mild, slightly sweet flavour that is ideal for yoghurt-based sauces, drinks, salads and tabouleh.
Egyptian mint likes a full sun to part shade position (it can tolerate low light levels) in well draining soil. It enjoys regular watering and should grow to about 1m high by 1m wide.
Ideal for containers, the plant will benefit from an annual prune.
Lovely white flowers.
