Wrinkled, arrowhead-shaped leaves impart a refreshingly sweet, cool scent and flavor. Use spearmint for making mint jelly and sauces for lamb and many mediterranean dishes. Spearmint also makes a delicious herbal tea, either hot or iced. Bees adore the fluffy spikes of light lavender-pink flowers. Spearmint plants grow 1-2 ft. tall and spread quickly; all types of mint are best grown in containers.
