Description

If you enjoy herbs and fragrant plants, this exotic herb, from Central and South America, is something unusual to try. Used since the Aztec Civilisation as a natural, sugary flavouring, Aztec Sweet Herb can be used to sweeten tea, fruit salads or cold desserts without the calories of sugar! Its green leaves, sometimes purplish, have a sweet, minty scent and contain compounds called hernandulcin which give them their intense, sugary taste. The roots have a liquorice flavour. It also produces small white flowers in the summer.

Trailing and ground covering, it can be grown in a border or container. It looks especially good in a hanging basket where its long tendrils can dangle for easy picking. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Culinary Herb note: Some parts of these plants are edible and can be used as herbs to add flavour and colour to your meals. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting out. This half-hardy plant needs a sheltered, sunny spot. In colder, northerly gardens it is best over-wintered indoors.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
