Wild mint is a herbaceous perennial plant generally growing to 10to60 cm (3.9to23.6 in) and rarely up to 100 cm (39 in) tall. It has a creeping rootstock from which grow erect or semi-sprawling squarish stems. The leaves are in opposite pairs, simple, 2to6.5 cm (0.79to2.56 in) long and 1to2 cm (0.39to0.79 in) broad, hairy, and with a coarsely serrated margin. The flowers are pale purple (occasionally white or pink), in whorls on the stem at the bases of the leaves. Each flower is 3 to 4 mm (0.12 to 0.16 in) long and has a five-lobed hairy calyx, a four-lobed corolla with the uppermost lobe larger than the others and four stamens. The fruit is a two-chambered carpel.

Planting and care
The mulch should feel moist but not wet. Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering. Keep moist in winter. Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch. Stake tall lilies.
Mentha Arvensis care
After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential. Also, select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, lilies need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If it, s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over.
