Scrub Mint

The Symbol of Freedom


The scrub mint is found in the Highlands of Florida, and it is in the critically imperiled category on the endangerment scale.


Scrub mint is exclusive to a very small area in Florida targeted by developers. This is making them become more and more scarce as their habitats are destroyed. This is hurting not only the minty beings, but a species of moth, Pyrausta Panopealis, who use the mint as a larva raising host. In terms of economics, the mint provides a beautiful and unique character to the overall bland Florida hghlands.
