Applemint

Applemint
 Highly Vigorous-Spreading Mint Useful for Tea and Insect Repellant

This is the mint that is considered one of the most durable and vigorous selections able to grow in a variety of soil conditions. We are using this species in our plantings as a groundcover as a mask for insects that infect our fruit. Its thick rhizomes also outcompete quackgrass,spotted knapweed and makes a nice sod where we do not mow. Applemint provides nice nectar laden flowers perfect for bees and butterflies.  Applemint makes a delicious tea and from a horticultural point of view far more vigorous and drought tolerant than any mint selection we have tested.
