Kentucky Colonel mint is great for Mint Juleps, Mojitos and more. Like all mints it should be confined to a pot. Mints grow better in pots that have a wide surface area rather than a lot of depth. A 14 inch Terra Cotta Bowl makes a perfect mint pot, at least for the first year. After that, it'll need to be divided and repotted using fresh soil each spring.
This spearmint has captured our hearts with a large leaf on a robust plant that is the basis for that little ole southern drink, the Mint Julep. Kentucky Colonel Spearmint can be used in any recipe calling for spearmint, including mint sauce and mint jelly.
