Available for purchase is a and versatile herb, Peppermint. They can be used like any member of the mint family whether you want to attract butterflies and bees, use the herbs in recipes, or just to plant as an aromatic ground cover. Peppermint is an excellent digestive aid and has been used for the treatment of morning and motion sickness, as well as an inhalant to treat congestion. Sometimes they will even sport a variegated offshoot. They grow in Zones 4 to 7, in full sun to shade, in most soils. The average height is 2', but they spread more like a ground cover indefinitely. If cultivating for culinary use, moist soil and part sun are best. I suggest a large planter if doing this. Under perfect growing conditions, the mint can spread very easily and may be hard to contain otherwise. I believe the "strong shall survive" in my garden. You will appreciate my motto.
