Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Use: leaves stems flowers.
If planning to use this charmer in a container, be aware that it is a very aggressive plant, and will eventually strangle out the others, so you are best to give it its own pot. They also prefer damp rich soil and shade.
Peppermint is used after dinner for its carminative effect. It is also delightful with meats and in desserts.

WARNING: Do not pick wild - use only identified mints. Pennyroyal, a close cousin, has been known to induce comas and convulsions.
