Attractive and extremely fragrant, 'Chocolate' mint is easy to grow and will be a guaranteed winner in your garden!
Includes two pots of 'Chocolate' Mint.
'Chocolate' mint is a highly aromatic and delicious herb! When planted in-ground, this square stemmed member of the mint family can take over an area readily and quickly! Its spreading habit can be contained if provided a barrier. Medium-sized, green leaves cover the herb, reaching 18 to 24-inches tall and wide. Tiny, cone-shaped, lavender flowers shoot up from the center of the plant for a charming late summer show.


Is this for you?
The peppermint patty of the garden! 'Chocolate' mint leaves have a scrumptious taste reminiscent of a peppermint patty. The chocolatey, minty leaves are not only tasty, but delightfully aromatic when crushed! Butterflies and other pollinators will love the lavender flowers this mint produces!

Harvest mint prior to flowering for best taste. The flavorful, aromatic leaves can be harvested when the plant has reached approximately 3 to 4-inches in height, typically in late summer. Harvest by trimming up to one third of a stem, then use the leaves as desired.

There are endless culinary and ornamental uses for 'Chocolate' mint! Leaves can be crushed, chopped or dried for use in beverages, desserts or essential oils. Its rich, attractive foliage adds beauty and texture to patio planters and window boxes.

A vigorous grower! This overachiever is best planted in areas where it can spread. If spreading is not desired, keep the herb contained by planting in containers, bordered areas or by planting in a container then submerging the pot in the ground. 'Chocolate' mint plants thrive in damp or moist areas of the garden, and the lushest growth occurs when it is planted in a full to part sun location.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories OR, AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
