Mentha piperita citrata

ORANGE MINT

 
 

Orange Mint

 

Like all mints, Orange  Mint, should be confined to a pot. Mints grow better in pots with lots of surface area rather than lots of depth. The window box above is a perfect container. This box was planted in June with two of our three inch pots. By September, it is nice and full and even trying to escape. Notice those long runners heading off the sides of the box. If these found moist dirt they would root and put up new stems. By next spring, this Orange Mint will need to be divided and repotted with fresh soil.

Orange Mint is on of the six plants chosen to be in our Zone 5 Tea Herb Garden.
