Noteworthy Characteristics

'Kentucky Colonel' Mint features superior foliage to the species. The dark green leaves are ovate to lanceolate and terminal. Plants spread by rhizomes to form an attractive groundcover with spikes of small lilac to pink to white flowers in summer. Leaves have a strong spearmint fragrance and taste, and may be used to flavor teas, in salads, as a garnish or in pot pourris.

Growing & Harvesting Information

Best grown in rich, moist soils in full sun to part shade. Adapts to a wide range of soils except dry ones.

Harvest the tender young stems and leaves of Kentucky Colonel Spearmint late in the morning of a dry, sunny day after the plant is 3 to 4 inches tall. Cut stems back to 1/2 to 1 inch tall if you need a lot of mint. Clip only the top two leaf sets if you need just a small amount. Leave at least two leaves on each stem that you pick from. This plant grows and performs best with frequent pickings, so help yourself often.

Uses & Cooking Information

Leaves have a strong spearmint fragrance and taste, and may be used to flavor teas, in salads, desserts, as a garnish or in pot pourris.
