Sweetly aromatic Spearmint (Mentha Spicata) can be used in both cooking-in the well-known mint jelly and sauces-and in potpurri and other fragrant decorative items. This perennial grows to 3 feet tall and spreads rapidly to indefinite widths. The 2-3 1/2 inch lance-shaped leaves are a unique wrinkled texture. Oblong terminal spikes of lilac-pink to white flowers appear all summer.
