Peppermint's refreshing aroma is more pungent than spearmint; this is the mint of candy canes and mint chocolate. The leaves and flowers, fresh or dried, make an invigorating tea. Deep green, teardrop-shaped leaves have attractive reddish-purple undersides and stems. Whorled spikes of tiny purple flowers attract bees. Peppermint plants grow to 2 ft. tall, and spread vigorously. We recommend planting all mint in pots to keep them contained.
