Applemint

One of the tallest garden mints, sometimes clambering up two or more feet in height, but is best shorn down frequently to prevent bloom. Its fuzzy leaves and stems have a distinct minty apple taste, and it lends its flavor to applemint jelly and couscous, as well as teas that will calm upset stomach and soothe body and soul.

Mints are very invasive and will take over your garden, so plan to plant them in containers or in a confined area in the garden!
