About this book

Mints: A Family of Herbs and Ornamentals is the first book to survey the entire mint family (Lamiaceae or Labiatae), which includes a surprising variety of plants long valued for their herbal and ornamental uses, from rosemary, sage, and thyme to lavender and peppermint. Most mints are easy to grow, sometimes notoriously so, and highly resistant to pests and diseases, which adds to their garden value. Written in a friendly and accessible style, the book features chapters on history and lore, modern uses, cultivation, and distinctive characteristics and classification; a catalog of species and cultivars in 67 genera; and a glossary.
