Mentha x suavis
Perennial | Full sun to part shade | 2.5″ container
Mint is such a versatile herb. It can be used to flavor drinks and teas, in main dishes, or in desserts. Mint is an aggressive grower and will go crazy (and spread via underground rhizomes) once planted so be mindful where you plant it. I personally would stick to planting them in containers to keep the plant contained. It is a perennial herb that comes back every year and can reach a mature height of 12-24.” In the hottest part of our summers here in the southeast, mint might die back (if not offered afternoon shade) but will return in the fall when cooler temperatures set in. It will also die back during harsh winters but will re-emerge once temperatures warm back up.
Your plant may vary from the sample plants pictured, depending on the time at which you receive the plant and if any recent pruning was done to keep the plant tidy.
