Description from Annie's Annuals & Perennials
Both the deep green, spear-shaped leaves & tiny pinkish-white flowers are fantastically aromatic – this bushy, wonderful-smelling herb makes a great tea or seasoning, plus it’s known for having anti-oxidant properties & the fresh, minty aroma creates a calm state of mind! Growing to 18” tall by 4’ wide, it can spread far & wide via tubers, so it’s a perfect choice for a container or a restricted bed. Birds, bees & butterflies can’t stay away from this long-blooming (from mid-Summer thru mid-Fall) beauty, deadhead regularly to extend blooms & to maintain a compact form. Will do best in full sun, but does just fine in part shade – provide regular water in well-draining soil & you’ll have mint juleps all through the hot months! Cut it back in Winter – it will come back stronger than ever in Spring.
