Description

Broadway Mint is an excellent choice for creating privacy and defining spaces in your garden or landscape. Its slightly curly evergreen foliage adds texture and visual interest, making it a standout feature in any setting. Being able to reach heights of 3-4 meters makes it an ideal variety for screening hedges, providing a lush green barrier that offers both privacy and beauty. Its quicker growth speed compared to other varieties, like Ficus Flash, makes it an attractive option for those looking to establish their hedge more rapidly.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I care for Broadway Mint?

Choose a location that receives adequate sunlight and has well-draining soil. When planting, ensure proper spacing to allow room for growth and airflow between plants. Water thoroughly after planting to help establish the roots. While Broadway Mint is relatively drought-tolerant once established, it’s essential to water newly planted hedges regularly, especially during dry periods. Once established, water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.

 

When should I prune Broadway Mint?

Regular pruning is necessary to maintain the desired height and shape of your screening hedge. Prune lightly throughout the growing season to encourage dense growth and remove any dead or damaged branches. Avoid heavy pruning during hot periods to prevent stress on the plants.

 

Is Broadway Mint edible?

It’s important to note that the term “mint” in the common name of this plant might be misleading. While it shares a common name with true mints (genus Mentha), such as spearmint and peppermint, it belongs to a different botanical genus (Prostanthera) and is not related to culinary mint plants.
