Spearmint (Mentha spicata / Mentha sativa), also known as garden mint, common mint, lamb mint and mackerel mint, is a species of mint native to much of Europe and Asia (Middle East, Himalayas, China), and naturalised in parts of northern and western Africa, North America, and South America, as well as various oceanic islands.
Spearmint grows well in nearly all temperate climates. Gardeners often grow it in pots or planters due to its invasive, spreading rhizomes. The plant prefers partial shade, but can flourish in full sun to mostly shade. Spearmint is best suited to loamy soils with abundant organic material.
Spearmint has much the same properties as peppermint, but is milder and good for use with children’s complaints.
