@sharonhayden I don't think the smell is horrible but I do think it's strange and I don't like to smell it for very long 😂 I have no idea, I've never heard it called Vietnamese mint before 🤔💘😍

@kez001uk I agree the colors are great but I learned my lesson by planting it in the ground and 30 years later I'm still pulling it up along with my hair!🤦😫💘😍

That's good to know. It's so pretty it's tempting to put in a flower bed. I have a newbie in a pot Ms Shelley. Has yet to pop out of the soil but I know it will @kimguy

@columbiariver oh Laura beware!! Unless you have a very very large area to let this run(which it will!!) Don't plant it in the ground!💘😍
