Wonderfully fragrant, dark foliage. Like all mints, this one likes to take over by sending its creeping roots off in various directions. We wouldn't be without this, so we just keep it contained. As the photo shows, it takes up all the space we allow it (and is hungry for more)!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
