Kentucky Colonel is the most delicious mint out there, definitely our top spearmint pick for Mojitos and Mint Juleps! It’s easy to grow, and grows well indoors. Highly aromatic, Kentucky Colonel will release its strong minty scent when you brush past it.
The blooms of this popular herb attracts butterflies, but if you allow your mint to go to flower it can make the leaves taste bitter. Tip: Plant two pots of mint: one for you and one for the butterflies! We strongly suggest planting in a pot or container so that it will not overtake your herb garden.
