An irresistible chocolate-mint fragrance sets this perennial herb apart from other mints! This selection makes a nice groundcover for beds and borders near paths, benches or porches where the scent can be enjoyed. The plant is quite vigorous and should be planted in containers if spreading is not desired. Dried leaves are nice for adding to potpourris and herb pillows. Bees and butterflies love this plant!
