Description from Annie's Annuals & Perennials

An unusual mint with a fragrance resembling strawberry candy, but with an earthy undertone that is not the least bit minty. It’s perfect for sprinkling over fruit salads, ice creams or just add hot water for a unique and delicate tea with a lingering sweet strawberry aftertaste. Refreshing! Relative short, it grows to a little over 1’ high and spreads as far as you let it. The deeply textured dark green leaves form a dense, weed-suppressing mat that should be harvested regularly for best form. Lilac flowers emerge in Summer attracting loads of bees and butterflies. Generally grown in a container to keep it from spreading – when choosing a pot prioritize width over depth and repot every year or two for best vigor.
