Peppermint is a perennial, reaching 3 feet tall in the garden (much smaller in pots and indoors), and spreading just as far as you will let it. It offers smooth, lance-shaped 3-inch leaves, bright green with purple tints around the edges. In summer, spikes of lilac-pink flowers top the foliage, attracting bees into the garden. Give it sunshine and good soil drainage; it will do the rest!
Strongly aromatic peppermint can be used in both cooking – in drinks, salads, and baked goods – and in potpourri and other fragrant decorative items. In hot tea, it is said to help stomach upset.
Like all the mints, peppermint can be invasive. If you want to cover hot, sunny soil, it's invaluable, but if your space is limited or you want to plant other things nearby, you are much better off confining peppermint to a container. It grows wonderfully, and you will not only have plenty to harvest, but enough to give friends cuttings so that they can start their own mint gardens!
