Mint

Mint is best adapted to a shade or morning sun area and prefers moist soil.  It is an aggressive plant that spreads readily.  So, if you want to keep it contained, sink a planter in the ground and plant your mint into it. Mints are hardy here and will overwinter.

Uses:  Mints are used in teas, Greek cooking, and many types of desserts or drinks.  Make your own Mint Mojitos!
