Prostanthera cuneata is a delightful evergreen shrub with a bushy habit and aromatic leaves, commonly known as Alpine Mint Bush. It is native to the cool, mountainous regions of southeastern Australia, where it thrives in well-drained soils with good air circulation.
This compact shrub can reach a height of up to 1.5 meters and a spread of up to 1 meter. It produces masses of pretty pale blue to lilac flowers, which are borne on spikes from late spring to early summer. The blooms are highly attractive to bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, making it a great addition to any wildlife garden.
Prostanthera cuneata prefers a sunny or lightly shaded position in the garden and can tolerate a range of soil types, as long as they are well-drained. It is ideal for planting in rock gardens, mixed borders, or as a low hedge. It is also suitable for growing in containers, where its aromatic foliage can be enjoyed up close.
This easy-to-grow shrub is low-maintenance, but it benefits from an occasional light trim to maintain its shape and encourage bushy growth. Overall, Prostanthera cuneata is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for a tough, attractive, and wildlife-friendly plant that adds a touch of color and fragrance to the garden.
