This hardy perennial is a very robust grower. Apple Mint has interesting light green leaves. They are somewhat hairy on the upper surface and downy underneath, with serrated edges. They can grow up to 3 feet high, but may be kept lower.

Grow Apple Mint in full sun to light shade. Feed them heavily in late summer to guarantee healthy growth the following spring. Apple Mint will survive in dry soil, but will do much better in moist, fertile ground. Cut back or mow down the Mint patch 2 or 3 times a year to encourage fresh growth. Cut the stems even with the ground and throw out the long, woody stems. Strip off and dry whole leaves for potpourris. Save the top 2 to 3 sets of leaves for fresh use and garnishes. Apple Mint's fragrance may vary in strength; the mild apple flavor doesn't sustain well in dried leaves.

This herb has a  peppermint like menthol scent.  Related to the regular mints, it does not have the invasive runners. White to pale pink flowers in late spring to summer.   12-18" height and width, but can get much larger under good conditions.  Well drained soil a must.  Does not like soggy feet!  Sun to partial shade.  Perennial Zones 2-9

A strong tea made from the leaves will get rid of chiggers when applied externally to the affected areas.  Also makes a natural insect repellent although you will smell like a candy cane.  Deer will not touch this plant and tend to avoid any plants close to it.

Great for drying.
