Toss bruised leaves into ice water for a refreshing summer drink or add to iced tea. Spearmint is favored for flavoring beverages such as mojito. Also know as Yerba Buena. Spreading plant is great for containers. Tolerates light frost.

    Refreshing!: I drink a lot of tea. I put fresh spearmint leaves into my tea pitcher with my regular tea & pour hot water over it & let it steep 5 minutes before finishing up. It gives regular tea such a refreshing taste!

    needs space: I planted this in an elevated raise bed garden even with a divider from top to bottom it still managed to invade surrounding areas of a 4 by 4 garden overuning all it obviously needed constant attention to weed it
