Spearmint (Mentha spicata) is a perennial, rhizomatous plant that grows well in most temperate climates. It will tolerate anything from full sun to full shade but its vigor and tenderness will be determined by the amount of water it receives. Once established, spearmint is very low maintenance and is a must have for all culinary herb gardens. Fresh or dried leaves are delicious as tea.
