A variety of apple mint, Pineapple Mint's green-and-white variegated leaves are pretty in the garden and as a food garnish in fruit cups & punches. Good addition to potpourris. It grows to 8-12 inches, prefers partial shade and a moist, rich soil, and produces long spikes of pale white or cream flowers. Remove any stems which are solid green (so you don't lose the variegation) or solid white (because without chlorophyll they can't survive). This rather invasive plant is a good herb for container growing. It attracts bees and butterflies.
