Weeds of the mint family are scented, low growing, sprawling plants that include aluminium plant, pennyroyal, lemon balm, peppermint, ground ivy and wild marjoram.
Plants of the wild mint family are often cultivated in gardens but frequently spread out of control and become weedy. These weeds include pennyroyal, aluminium plant, wild marjoram, wild sage, wild basil, peppermint, lemon balm, selfheal, red deadnettle henbit and ground ivy. They are herbs that often have a strong scent (particularly mint and lemon balm). Some such as red deadnettle have an unpleasant smell when crushed.
They are common invasive weeds in flowerbeds, gardens, roadsides, hedgerows, scrubs, forests and around waterways. They often form dense clumps or mats of ground cover. Some such as pennyroyal will invade lawns.
