    Your basic "mint" IS peppermint. Then you have all the other varieties...orange, spearmint, chocolate, etc. So if a plant is labeled "peppermint", that is the plant you want for "mint."

    And...I'll warn you about lemon balm. It is horribly invasive. Somehow it got into my rear alley garden and I cannot get rid of it. It seeds copiously and/or spreads by runners. I have been pulling up every scrap I find for years and it still pops up everywhere. Its as bad as blackberry only it doesn't slice you open with horrible thorns.

    Mine clumps it grows slow here .... Besides chikens like it so it keeps down but I could imagine it being invasive but blackberries are super invasive around here.
