Apple Mint Plants

Mentha suaveolens

Apple Mint is both less invasive than other mint plants and has a sweeter flavor. The soft gray-green leaves of Apple Mint have a wonderful fruity scent - an apple-menthol fragrance that is delightful.

This mint plant likes full sun, and will spread quickly. Even though it is less invasive, it is still a mint and you need to keep it under control. It has a delicate purple bloom and makes a wonderful tea as well as being a fruity alternative to other culinary mints. It is also used medicinally to ease the sting of a bee.

For a great looking "Butterfly Garden" in a pot, combine Apple Mint with Asclepias 'Silky Mix' and under plant with Lantana 'Dallas Red' - keep a camera ready as you won't believe how many butterflies you'll attract throughout the summer!

Best Mint for Iced Tea July 2, 2018
Reviewer: C. Verrelli from Devon, PA United States  
I've been searching for this mint for ages, have never found it at my local garden centers.  I ordered 4 plants, they arrived in perfect condition and are thriving!  I'm enjoying my mint iced tea and will try some mojitos soon!
