    It depends on what variety you get on how weedy it is, and the flavor changes with each. Wild mint is very weedy, the mountain minst don't spread as aggresively, and I like the taste of them better.
    You can order seed from prairiemoon.com
    Wild Mint is Mentha arvensis
    The mountain mints are Pycnanthemum pilosum, Pycnanthemum tenuifolium, Pycnanthemum virginianum, and Pycnanthemum virginianum var. something don't remember what. Prairie moon has decent prices on seed. $2 a pack and a good amount, 100-1000 per pack depending on seed size.

    I picked some seed packets at Wal-Mart so I'm gonna start it up. Will it grow year-round inside by a window?

    It might. I would try to collect seed from it just incase it doesn't like not having a dormancy. You should sow these like CPs, place on top of the suface, don't cover them, and water from the bottom.
    Mints form a rhizom during the winter.

    The package says to cover them with the soil.

    At work we just put them on the surface.

    The places I checked say they need light to germinate.
