Orange Mint is a fragrant, lush, attractive plant ideal for gardens and containers alike. The deep green leaves are tinted with shades of orangey-red, and it has a unique, citrusy aroma and flavor.

High in Vitamin A and C, this delicious mint not only adds zest and zing to drinks and dishes but is a healthy menu choice. Use fresh in salads, desserts, garnishes, added to cold drinks, and or as sauce for lamb and fish. Dried Orange Mint leaves are perfect for potpourris and sachets.

Plant 12” to 18” apart in a full sun to part-sun location in well-draining soil. This variety of mint is heat- and humidity-tolerant so it can survive by water gardens and in moist parts of the garden. Lushest growth occurs in moist soil in partial shade. It will grow up to 24” tall and needs frequent pruning to contain the plant to a specific area. Perennial in most zones, just cut back in the fall and cover with leaves or straw to overwinter.
