Several years ago I tried transplanting some wild mint from
the Hishma desert to my back yard. I failed in my first two attempts.
I finally disconnected the drain pipe from my kitchen sink and
ran it directly to the plot where the mint was growing, and then
the mint flourished. The original mint plant was taken from Lawrence's
Spring, high on the mountain above Wadi Rumm village, where it
grew in the shade of the mountain where water seeped from a crack
in the rock.
This wild mint is good added to tea, and is especially helpful
to those suffering from allergies or asthma.
