Peppermint is very easy to grow, and is useful for both the landscape and the kitchen! The highly aromatic leaves are nice for flavoring teas, iced drinks and salads. Makes a fabulous instant breath freshener just by chewing a leaf! It is best to grow this vigorous plant in containers on the patio or a sunny windowsill to keep it from spreading. Bees and butterflies love this plant.
