Mentha cordifolia ‘Kentucky Colonel’

Mentha cordifolia ‘Kentucky Colonel’ also goes by ‘Mojito Mint’, and not for no reason! Highly fragrant leaves are often used for food and drink recipes. Aside from being useful in the kitchen, ‘Mentha’ is a beautiful, low growing and quick spreading perennial that offers a lot of texture from the tiny white hairs on heart-shaped, serrated evergreen leaves. Small, light pink flowers bloom in the summer months that are very enticing to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
