This dwarf form of the native east coast river peppermint is a lovely tree for small suburban gardens. The parent plant is far too big for any but the largest acreages, whereas mini-me Dry White will only reach a few metres when full-grown. Long slender khaki-green leaves, blushed pink-purple when young; and white pompoms of spring-summer flowers at the end of each weeping branch.

We love Dry White for the subtle leaf colour, fluffy white flowers, compact garden-friendly size
