Badja Peak Mint Bush

Prostanthera cuneata 'Badja Peak'

An excellent fast growing, compact perennial shrub, perfect for massing in sun to dappled shade. Dark green, aromatic foliage is attractive year round. In spring to early summer, small orchid-like flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators. A great choice for informal screen, at the back of the border or container plantings.
