This delightful mint variety has slightly fuzzy leaves that have a delicate, apple scent. It resents dry conditions more than other varieties, so choose a site where the soil stays fairly moist.
Like all mint plants, apple mint is pollinator-friendly, attracting bees and butterflies to its lavender flowers in late summer. Bees and butterflies need our help.
For a delicious herbal tea, steep the leaves in hot water, strain and drink hot or iced.
