From mint jellies to potpourris!
Spearmint leaves provide a burst of cool flavor, something greatly appreciated during those hot summer days! This well-loved herb is strongly aromatic, its fragrance irresistible when added to teas and potpourris, and its flavor unmistakable in candies, jellies, and cold drinks! Spearmint, like all mints, is easy to grow, thriving in containers or spreading readily in the garden. It reaches 3' tall, with lance-shaped, uniquely wrinkled leaves. And all summer long, lilac-pink to white bloom spikes attract bees, butterflies, and birds!
