Mint Julep Plants For Sale

The Mint Julep Mint is a spearmintmentha spicata, that is extremely popular for sauces, jellies, teas, fruit salads and, of course, drinks. This Mint Julep grows in the 12 to 18 inch height range wth a spread of up to 3 feet. While this spearmint is very easy to grow, it is still a mint and you will want to keep it contained in pots so the plants do not creep out and onto the ground where it can become invasive. The Mint Julep Mint blooms in summer and attracts bees and butterflies, plus is deer resistant
