Here are peppermint flowers growing in our backyard in Longmont, Colorado on August 2, 2017. This plant is a hybrid between spearmint and watermint, and does not produce seeds so it spreads only through it's roots, but is said to grow nearly anywhere, and rapidly too.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
