Ah mint! The attractive 3 foot plants perfume the air. Plants are covered with 3 inch, lance shaped leaves of wrinkled texture, bearing pink to white blooms on the terminal spikes throughout the summer. Mint is easy to grow, a dependable perennial, and used in jellies, sauces, and potpourri. Mint does not always come 100% true from seed and can be a bit invasive but a pot or small planting is an essential ingredient of any herb garden. Generally the mint we sell will be spearmint but it could also be peppermint or common mint.
