Will grow 2' - 4' tall and is not fussy about soil conditions though it will perform better in well drained soil. Full sun to part shade.

Rating An Interesting Mint Relative
 
Not a true mint, but it smells similar to apple mint. Grows very tall and seems to stay in the general area you planted it, meaning it may not be invasive. Makes lots of flowers and attracts pollinators like bumblebees and wasps, atleast in my area, depends where you are. Grows great.
