Product Description

Mountain Mint Plant produces a mint-like scent.

Mountain Mint is one tolerant plant that grows freely in the wild and can perform well when grown at our home gardens. There are over 11 species of mountain mint plants found on the coastal plains of South Carolina. The plant produces a mint-like scent, especially when they blossom and ready for flowering. They have white tuber-like flowers to attract insects like bees and wasps, which later foster cross-pollination.

 

 This is a temperate plant that does well all year round and which adapts to any environmental changes. Mountain mint performs well in well-drained soils with good sunlight, making the rhizomes spread quickly and create a colon. A mature plant grows between 2 to 3 feet tall, and the flowers are always held at the top of the plant, thus attracting insects while the minty fragrance keeps away foragers. 

 

Mountain Mint adapts to most soil types.

 Growing mountain mint in your garden is very simple and easy as long as you provide the proper environmental conditions. The plant quickly adapts to changes in the environment and will give you an easy time maintaining it because of the minimum supervision. The plant is best known to perform well in zones 4 to 8, where there is good sunlight. There are two ways of planting mountain mint. You can directly plant the seeds in the garden or get already germinated seedlings and transfer them to your garden. 

 

 The Mountain mint plant is beneficial because of the products it produces. The plant is edible and more often used by herbalists to create human herbs. Its lovely scented minty leaves are harvested and dried and can be used in the preparation of tea, where it gives the tea a minty taste. The flower buds, once harvested, are prepared and used in food seasoning, especially meat. In addition, there are many health benefits from the herbal tea prepared from mountain mint, which includes managing menstrual disorders, cough, colds, gum disease, and fevers. The plant produces broad base leaves of between 1 to 2 inches long with slightly serrated edges and will turn to white when nearing maturity. The flowers are long and appear whitish or lavender, giving your garden a pretty excellent aesthetic value.
