Rating Great mint plant
 
They say Kentucky Colonel mint is the classic ingredient for a julep. I'm still partial to spearmint for it's slightly sweeter taste, but this mint is definitely a rock star. I'm had it for about 1-2 months and it's thriving in the sun. The leaves are huge (much bigger than other mint plants) and the plant has doubled in size. I love that it's a perennial, too, so I don't have to buy a new one next yr if I don't want to. My advice to others is to bring the plant inside or cover it for the winter. I previously had this type of mint for a few yrs but last yr was unusually cold & the plant didn't come back to life in Spring.

Rating Has more than doubled in size in 10 days!
 
This mint has a lovely scent but I have yet to use it in anything. But after following their re-potting instructions, it has more than doubled in size since I received it 10 days ago. I am very pleased with the vitality of all the plants I've purchased from Colonial Creek.
