Melanthium virginicum (Syn. Veratrum) (new)

Once treated as a Veratrum, this highly attractive and very hardy Eastern North American perennial is very slow to increase from seed, therefore is very rarely offered in the UK. Rosettes of corrugated linear foliage give rise to flowering stems in early summer, topped by candelabras of creamy-white flowers followed by handsome pale green seed pods. Unlike most Veratrum this flowers nearly every year if well fed.

A gift from the Berbers of the Anti-Atlas, Southern Morocco, this is the true Moroccan Mint, vital for authentic Moroccan mint tea, unlike most of the other stock currently in cultivation which is substandard. Traditionally brewed with Chinese gunpowder green tea, poured from a great height and served with large amounts of white sugar! Unlike other M. spicata this needs a sunny well drained spot.
