      Hi Jen, I double-checked on this. Our zone designations indicate the winter hardiness that we are aware of. This plant may overwinter in colder zones but we’re not sure of it. If you would like to experiment with outdoor overwintering in a colder zone, we’d appreciate any feedback. Richo

      Minty, tending towards spearmint. Of all the mints I’ve tasted, I find this to be cleanest. And, my greehouse staff feels the same–they maintain some gallons of chinese mint for chewing, and they could have about 10 other kinds of mint, and they choose this one.
