Prostanthera Overview

A genus of around 90 species of evergreen, bushy shrubs in the Lamiaceae (mint or dead nettle) family with aromatic dark green foliage and sprigs of tiny cup-shaped flowers in late Spring. They originate from Australia where they mainly grow in arid regions. They are cultivated for their scented leaves and attractive flowers and for the production of essential oils. In cultivation they need protection from frosts and excessive winter wet.
