Mentha suaveolens

One of our favorite teas for drying. Excellent blend with green or black tea. Vigorous and spreading like most mints. Apple Mint is an excellent late summer pollen source for many insects. Zones 5-9. Can fill in a cultivated area. At the nursery we have it on a bank with rose hip roses.
