Pennyroyal Upright (Mentha pulegium)

Pennyroyal Upright – Mentha pulegium

Pennyroyal Upright – Mentha pulegium is a creeping, peppermint scented plant that enjoys moist soil and some shade. Bright mauve flowers appear up the stem in summer. Makes a pleasant tea although the tisane should be avoided by expectant mothers. As the latin name suggests, this was once used as a flea repellent but is equally as good if you need to banish ants!
