The icy blast of winter-mint fragrance makes this a lavender you won’t forget. Silvery gray, ferny foliage and spikes of steely lavender-colored blooms give this edible ornamental a frosted look. The fragrance is an intoxicating mix of cool mint infused with traditional lavender! We love to tuck these tidy, 2.5-foot-tall plants into mixed container plantings, landscapes, and cottage gardens to add a touch of frosty elegance.
White Horehound is a perennial plant that is known for its traditional remedy for coughs. The plant has earned its place in the herb garden with its mounds of silvery foliage that last all season long in most climates. The white flowers of the plant are pretty but not really showy. The plant is a must for candy-making and flavorful, medicinal tea.
