Product Description

Do not let their tiny appearance fool you.  Mint is an aggressive grower and will go crazy once planted!  It is a perennial herb that comes back every year. It 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 might die back during harsh winters but will re-emerge during springtime when temperatures warm back up.

Full sun to part-shade.

Starter plants are in 2.5″ containers.

Mint is super easy to grow with little to no maintenance required. My biggest (and strongest) suggestion for growing mint is to plant it in a container! It spreads via underground rhizomes and is aggressive. If you plant it in the ground somewhere, you must be okay with it taking over the area. I planted mine in a DIY planter well off the ground so it wouldn’t grow into the ground. I put a wood divider in the middle (nailed in) so I could plant flowers on one side with the mint contained on the other side. The mint found its way to the other side of the container. In my experience, you cannot kill mint. It seems to thrive despite what I do or forget to do.
