Description

Peppermint, (Mentha piperita), strongly aromatic perennial herb of the mint family (Lamiaceae). The plant is a hybrid between watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (M. spicata)

Mentha piperita  has a strong sweetish odour and a warm pungent taste with a cooling aftertaste. The leaves are typically used fresh as a culinary herb.

The plant has square stems, stalked, smooth, dark green leaves, and blunt oblong clusters of pinkish lavender flowers. As with other mints, the plant can spread aggressively by means of stolons (underground stems).

The main active ingredient in Peppermint is  Menthol, which is an organic compound that produces a cooling sensation when applied to the mouth or skin. It also acts as a mild anesthetic (which means a compound creating a reversible loss of sensation).

Environment

Mentha piperita this plant needs lots of water and it is often found naturalized by streams and ponds where the soil is rich and the drainage is good. It won tolerate dry conditions. While partial sun is sufficient for peppermint, planting it in full sun will increase the potency of its oils and medicinal qualities.  Protect plants from hot afternoon sun

Nutrient-rich, moist soil is ideal, although mint grows in nearly any type of soil. Amend soil with organic matter, such as compost.

Landscape Uses

Sage herb is an excellent choice for xeriscaping or low water landscapes.


Peperomia plants are really good houseplants. They come in a variety of variations which make them incredible to look at.
You should water a peperomia plant once the top 1-2 inches of the soil dries completely and then water the plant thoroughly. Overwatering is the number one problem of killing this plant. Signs of overwatering of peperomia plants can be rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves, a heavy pot and waterlogged soil.
Peperomia plants do best in bright indirect light or filtered light. They cannot handle direct sun as it scorches their leaves. If the light provided is less sufficient, the plant tends to stretch a bit towards the light which is very noticeable.
