Buy Mojito Mint Plants at Greenwood Nursery
Mojito Mint is the mint, Mentha x villosa, used to make the Authentic Cuban Mojito drink. A simple drink to make that looks impressive and great for spring and summer entertaining. This mild scented mint can be used in fruit salads as well as potpourri. Best when used fresh but leaves can be dried and stored in airtight containers with little flavor loss.
As with most mints, the Mojito mint plant can be invasive if not corralled properly, so plant it in a container with a 2 inch recessed rim so the plant doesn't creep out onto the ground. Draping outside the container is fine, but it shouldn't touch the ground. Move the pot around to different areas of your garden to add subtle impact and fragrance. The Mojito Mint can be a wonderfully fragrant addition to any garden if planted in containers. Matures in the 18 to 24 inch height range. Space plants every 12 to 16 inches.
