Spearmint Seeds

Select Item


Highly aromatic, spreading plant is a garden joy

Days to Maturity: 70 to 90

Sweetly aromatic spearmint can be used in both cooking—in the well-known mint jelly and sauces—and in potpourri and other fragrant decorative items.

This perennial grows to 3 feet tall and spreads rapidly to indefinite widths. The 2- to 3½-inch lance-shaped leaves are a unique wrinkled texture. Oblong terminal spikes of lilac-pink to white flowers appear all summer.

Like other mints, spearmint is extremely easy to grow. In fact, it grows so well, it is best to confine it to containers. Grow in almost any soil conditions in sun or part shade, harvesting leaves all season long.
