Hey everyone, I was wondering if yall could tell me what kind of mint this is? Atleast, I think it's mint!



This is some that my grandmaw found on the other side of the house.

Your pix:

The first two look rather like monarda. The last, a mint. Looks similar to a wild mint I rooted and planted in my gardens.

Thank you for posting the pictures, I wasn't sure how to!

The first one is definitely not a monarda, we have a few of those, this has the same type of leaves as the one in the pot, just bigger, I'll try to get a better picture today.

My grandmaw planted them over 20 years ago but doesn't remember what kind they are, she thinks they're peppermint.
