Fresh Herb, Spearmint
Mentha spicata

Price: $12.49

Availability: IN STOCK


A refreshing member of the Mint family and savored for its refreshing minty aroma, Spearmint is a culinary herb with a more subtle scent than Peppermint. Sharply serrated leaves are commonly used in vinegar, teas, lamb condiments, and mint juleps as well as found in chewing gum and toothpastes. Wonderful potted plant because its spreading habit can be contained.  Thrives in consistently moist soils in full sun to part shade.

Harvesting:  Clip tips and use fresh.  Leaves do not dry well.
