Pink and Fuzzy

PinkAndFuzzyC

What is pink and fuzzy in a summer garden? Mint in bloom. In a moist climate like here in the Pacific Northwest, mint will grow and spread with wild abandonment. If you want just a little keep it in a pot. It is such a vigorous grower that you can use it to make low hedges. No matter how many times you trim it, mint will spring back quickly.

This is mentha suaveolens, also called apple mint, pineapple mint, woolly mint or round-leafed mint.
