the Classic Christmas Scent Right on the Patio!
Strongly aromatic peppermint can be used in both cooking - in drinks, salads, and baked goods - and in potpourri and other fragrant decorative items. In hot tea, it is said to help stomach upset.
This perennial grows to 3 feet tall and spreads rapidly to indefinite widths. The 3 inch smooth, lance-shaped, toothed leaves are tinged with purple around the edges. Oblong terminal spikes of lilac-pink flowers appear all summer.
Like other mints, peppermint 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.
