Mentha Species: Red Stemmed Apple Mint

This past weekend we participated in the Herb Societies of New Orleans annual fall herb sale. The delightful weather encouraged many folks to come out. Our herb of choice was red stemmed apple mint. A delicious blend of peppermint and spearmint. 

Here we have a few herb sale patrons discussing the beauty of the Salvia Microphylla, a butterfly plant propagated and nurtured by the folks with Garden on Marais.
