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.


RE: What kind of mint is this?

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.

So sorry, went and looked it is Monarda!! I was thinking they had smaller leaves, my bad! Not sure why I thought that haha. Thank you!
