MINT FAVE


Wild Mint

Perennial
There is only one kind of mint native to North America, and this is it. The leaves and stems are green and slightly hairy and the flavor is that of a mild, sweet peppermint. It flowers with white “balls” of flower clusters at the tops of the stems. Keep cutting back to keep it bearing well.
