Hairy Mint



Some botanists consider Hairy Mint just a sub-variety of Water Mint. There's not even any agreement on its scientific name.

There are also native American plants referred to as Hairy Mints: Hairy Wood Mint (Blephilia hirsuta) and Hairy Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum pilosum.)

For the classic "Hairy Mint", see Water Mint.

"Catering is the cottage industry of New York. All a caterer needs is a Cuisinart, some pots and pans and a couple of food magazines to start out. They get jobs, though they don't necessarily get repeats."

-- Donald Bruce White (New York caterer. 1924 - 21 May 1986)
