Dwarf peppermint tree

Agonis flexuosa ‘Nana’


The dwarf peppermint tree grows into a dense mounding shrub to 10 ft. in size. Springtime growth of its narrow leaves has a pleasing reddish tinge; these leaves hang gracefully from drooping branches and are fragrant when crushed.

Dwarf peppermint tree is an attractive foliage plant for Inland Empire gardens. It is still relatively unknown to most gardeners, but this should change in time. It is well suited for foundation plantings, on slopes and banks, and hedges and screens. It can adapt to low amounts of summer water once established, but readily accepts and grows larger with moderate levels.
