Peppermint has greenish-purple lance-shaped leaves while the rounder leaves of spearmint are more of a grayish green color. The taste of both peppermint and spearmint bear a flavor that can be described as a cross between pepper and chlorophyll, with peppermint being a bit stronger and spearmint being a little more cool and subtle.

The mints are excellent groundcovers due to their tendency to spread. If you keep them mowed, they will form a thick carpet.

Fresh mint is added to salads and summer beverages. The dried leaves make an aromatic tea that is sometimes considered to be an aid to digestion. Spearmint has a slightly milder flavor, less medicinal, than peppermint. The dried leaves can also be added to sachets and potpourris to give an impression of “coolness."
