Mentha cervina (Spearmint) is a member of the Mint family and roots readily either in wet ground or in water but is less vigorous than Mentha aquatica. Cut back unrequired growth at any time. Mentha cervina is good for colonizing areas to encourage wildlife as it gives plenty of habitat opportunities in a smaller pond. Bees, hoverflies and butterflies enjoy the flowers later in the season.

Quick order, plants arrived quickly and were beautifully packaged. Straight into pond and they have started to work immediately (oxygenating plants of various types). Healthy and vigorous. Will definitely use again.
