Almost everyone enjoys the delicious flavor of mint – it is wonderful in everything from iced drinks, to sauces, to lamb dishes. The flavor is best when the leaves are cut just before the blossoms open. You will want to keep this fast-spreading plant in a container so that it does not take over your garden. Slender spikes of pink or white flowers appear in the summer.
