Herb Spearmint Mentha Spicata

Herb Spearmint Mentha Spicata. A highly aromatic, spreading plant with dark-green, sweetly aromatic spearmint leaves which can be extensively used as garnishes and flavoring. This perennial grows to 3 feet tall and spreads rapidly. The 2-3 inch lance-shaped leaves are a unique wrinkled texture. Oblong terminal spikes of lilac-pink to white flowers appear all summer, which attract bees and butterflies alike. Like other mints, spearmint is extremely easy to grow. In fact, it grows so well, it is best to confine it to containers. Grow in almost any soil conditions in sun or part shade, harvesting leaves all season long.
