Wintergreen :)

I found a wintergreen mint at Central Market. It's basically a sweeter form of spearmint, the same way candy-mint is a sweeter form of peppermint. Mint really likes to hybridize. Most of the time what you get is just a weaker, diluted mint, but sometimes there's treasures :)

I'm going to have to plant this one a bit away from everything else :( I'm trying to avoid having any two mints directly next to each other, since they can start to dilute each other if they get their roots too close together. At least, that's what I've been told.

Going to the nursery again this afternoon. Am secretly hoping I don't find anything, I'm out of space for it right now.
