Buy Prostanthera cuneata alpine mint bush: Small evergreen with aromatic leaves and white flowers.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    An Australian native, this is a compact, aromatic, evergreen shrub with small, lustrous rounded leaves. From June to August, clusters of tubular, pure white flowers with distinctive purple and yellow markings appear. It is ideal for a sheltered, sunny, mixed or shrub border and looks particularly good among silver-leaved plants or strappy Phormiums.

  • Garden care: After flowering lightly trim or prune any shoot that spoil the symmetry of the plant. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3inch) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

Pretty and sturdy little evergreen

I have planted this in a client's garden and in my own,happily faced the Beast from the East and survived to -10. It is now (early June) covered in dainty white flowers, that contrast well with its rich green foliage. A compact evergreen for winter interest too.

I love this plant but some of the branches of leaves have gone brown and died anything i can do

These are not fully hardy, so you will often get some winter dieback. The best thing you can do then is to cut back these stems to neaten the whole plant up.
