Orange Mint has a bit of citrus fragrance and is quite easy to grow. Like all mints it is difficult to contain so give it lots of room or grow in a pot. Green-red branching stems reach 2-3 feet high. Very Gragrant leaves are smooth and dark green with a red edge. Attractive white and pink flowers on short spikes bloom from mid to late summer. High in Vitamins A and C, the fresh leaves are great in salads, desserts and garnishes, also delicious as a mint sauce for lamb or fish. Try making orange mint jelly or vinegar. For refreshing cold summer drinks, add a few leaves to lemonade or ice tea.
