Ginger Mint is a gorgeous, marvelously flowering, aromatic mint plant that fits well in a rock or herb garden or in a container. Offering up a show of pink blooms in spring, these ornamental 12″ plants put on a colorful season-long show of lightly-variegated, gold-flecked serrated leaves.
Leaves that are harvested when young are the most fragrant and flavorsome. These easy-to-grow plants can also be grown in a patio container in part- or full sun. Mint can be invasive, so many gardeners opt for pots or containers. To harvest, snip the top leaves first to encourage the plants’ leaves to shoot from the base. Remove older woody stems to allow newer and younger shoots to fill in.
