Badja Peak Mint Bush
Yet another fantastic Australian mint bush! Badja Peak is an excellent selection of Prostanthera cuneata that we adore for its compact dark green tinted purple foliage, extremely fragrant evergreen leaves and white orchid-like flowers that look almost oversized compared to the compact foliage. The pollinators seem to be just as excited about Badja Peak as they hover and bumble into each beautiful flower and surround the whole plant in a plethora of bee species and butterflies too!
