Jon, I am really surprised you have no one posting about Mint Octopus. I just acquired it last fall, and it now has two scapes, hopefully will have at least one more. I love the pictures I have seen and I will definitely let everyone how this one does when it blooms for me--with pictures, of course.

I have only had it for one season. It put up a scape with a few lovely blooms but without trying the pod or pollen I don't have a lot to add.
