Mentha suaveolens / Marubahakka マルバハッカ

Mentha suaveolens, a European perennial, escaped during the horticultural process and grows wild in lowland grasslands. It smells of mint, with the whole with abundant white hairs. The phyllotaxis is the opposite; the leaves measure 3-5cm long and 2-4cm wide, in the shape of an oblong or orbicular, with no petioles and the bases embracing the stems, uneven surfaces with deeply dented veins, serrations on the margins, and glandular dots on the backside. Branch tops emerge 3-6cm long inflorescences and set many white labiate flowers, with four stamens, two prolonged, and project out of the corollas. Fruit branches into four mericarps or three occasionally. Bloom time: July-September.
