About Diemenica.

Mentha – from a Latin name for mint;

diemenica – of Tasmania (known earlier as Van Diemen’s Land), where the species occurs.

A herbaceous plant local to my area. Mentha diemenica, or Wild Mint, is endemic to Australia.  I planted a lot of it in a past job and the strong aroma and name stuck with me. It would make more sense if I was from Tasmania, but alas, I was stuck on the name before I looked up the meaning.
