Is there anything better than peppermint patties?
Yes! Chocolate Mint! We use this beautiful plant as a base to many of our teas.
With it's dark green leaves and dark stems this plant will be a stand out in your garden!
Be careful to keep it contained in a pot off of the ground if you want to keep this vigorous grower contained. It will spread above and below the ground making it hard to manage if you don't plan for it before you buy. Remember this is a MINT plant... it does whatever it wants! Personally, I'm happy to have it take over my tea gardens! I can't get enough of this amazing plant!
