Mint Plants
Q.

What am I growing?

Zone In NW Indiana | Anonymous added on August 16, 2016 | Answered

There is something growing that was here when I moved in. It is some kind of a mint, it smells like spearmint but looks nothing like the pictures on here. I spreads like wild fire. How can I find out what it is? Thank you.

It is estimated that there are over 600 varieties of Mint, both culinary and ornamental.
It very well likely is a Mint plant as they are highly invasive.
