Labiatae Beds

These family beds contain some of our well-used culinary plants including mints, rosemary, hyssops, lavenders and oreganos. On a hot day, the volatile oils mix and dissipate to create a tangy undernote on the air.

The flowers too can be spectacular, with the many Salvia species contributing long tubular flowers, often with conspicuous hoods and lips and ranging in colour from the royal blue of Salvia patens to scarlet Salvia elegans.
