I have this plant I got from a gardener in Kentucky many years ago. It is hard in Tennesse and Atlanta where I live now. It is more flavor intense than common mint and easy to grow. Does anyone else know what the botanical name is or does anyone else have this plant? I have never seen it anywhere else but it is definitely mint and makes the best mint juleps for my annual derby party.

Welcome, Leeharr!! I would hazard a guess it is probably "Spearmint" mint by the look of your picture. I have a lot of it, and it can be quite invasive. The absolute best for mint jelly, Thai food and mint julip cocktails!! Cheers!
