Mentha spicata

Spearmint, like all mints, can be an aggressive member of the garden.  Plant is best grown in a container or in a corner of the garden you don't mind turning over to mint.  Grows in full sun, partial shade or shade reaching a height of 24 inches.  Produces purple flowers that bees love.

Rich in volatile oils, the plant is traditionally used as a carminative, antibiotic and decongestant.
