Spearmint Mentha Spicata is one of the most popular perennial herbs. For mass plantings and commercial growing, Spearmint bulk seeds can be an economical way to grow the plant. Growing up to 3 feet tall, Spearmint features mint scented foliage with pointed, serrated leaves and produces terminal spikes of lilac-pink to white flowers. Spearmint blooms all summer long, and its aromatic flowers are like a magnet for bees and butterflies.
Spearmint is a widely popular culinary, medicinal, and ornamental herb for growing in herb gardens. Because of its spreading rhizomes, Spearmint makes a wonderful ground cover, but it is also often grown in pots and containers, so the plant does not become invasive. Mentha Spicata bulk seeds produce the plant that thrives in cool, moist environment, but Spearmint can tolerate full sun if the adequate moisture is provided. Spearmint has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years.
