Red Raripila Mint

Zone Sussex, UK | tomprocter@hotmail.com added on April 15, 2017 | Answered

Hi. You have a page about Red Raripila Mint which includes a photo. I am trying to identify a plant that smells like mint and has characteristic square stem and leaves growing opposite. The plant looks just like the one you have in the photo, however a further search on google produces no similar results. Is the photo accurate? I can't see where this variety gets its red colouring from if it is a hybrid. It would seem to be more a true type.
