Nope, never grown it before, but I wanted something edible to go with my non-edible plants. It's doing pretty good, even withstood one heck of a storm.

well hold on to you hat because in the blink of an eye it will be everywhere. It's a very invasive plant. It will send out plants from exposed roots,shoots, and runners wink laugh

And a gust of wind will blow through.......and behold!How'd that get there?that mints way over there.darn(*pull relocate at 2-3 inches)
I have chocolate mint,cat mint,lemon mint& a small start of cintronilla & a small pot of pineapple sage thats weird cause the leaves smell grapey.my chocolate mint is everywhere& i've only had it 3 yrs.I did container one clump.......but the wind blew through.
I've used the lemon mint on fish,crappie& bass& on chicken& always drop leaves in my tea.cat mint is stronger as tea& not as invasive& evergreen for me.I plan to keep my flowers off on my chocolate mint from now on.
