Mentha Arvensis are aromatic, almost exclusively perennial herbs. They have wide-spreading underground and overground stolons and erect, square, branched stems. Mints will grow 10-120 cm tall and can spread over an indeterminate area.
The leaves are arranged in opposite pairs, from oblong to lanceolate, often downy, and with a serrated margin. Leaf colors range from dark green and gray-green to purple, blue, and sometimes pale yellow. The flowers are white to purple and produced in false whorls called verticillasters. The corolla is two-lipped with four subequal lobes, the upper lobe usually the largest. The fruit is a nutlet, containing one to four seeds.
Mints develop into well-behaved-looking, bushy, upright clumps, but they soon set out to conquer new territory with horizontal runners and underground rhizomes.
Mentha Arvensis are widely distributed and can be found in many environments, most grow best in wet environments and moist soils. Mints are vigorous perennials that thrive in light soil with good drainage.
They will tolerate some shade, and the variegated types may require some protection from direct sun. They prefer a moist but well-drained site, something like their native habitat along stream banks
