Mentha x piperita

Peppermint grows in full sun, shade, or partial shade and just about any soil.  It grows so well, it is best either contained in a pot or allotted its own corner of the garden.  Produces spikes of purple flowers in mid to late summer.  Fragrant and attractive addition to the garden.  Zones 5-9.

Antispasmodic, carminative, diuretic and stimulating, it is traditionally used as a digestive aid.  The hot tea can be beneficial with fever and colds.
