Moroccan mint is my favourite. What's that called in the US I wonder?

Mentha spicata 'Nana' or 'Moroccan'

I grow my mint indoors and on my balcony during the summer because of our harsh climate (sweden) and it grows like crazy in a large wide low pot and supplies enough mint for my drinks and food. And even though i`m in new orleans during five weeks every summer the mint still just grows with occasional watering from my room companion.

When the fall comes it starts to decline and then i throw it away and re-start with fresh cuttings from the store next spring. I buy Moroccan mint and plant a bunch of cuttings that i first root in a glass of water ( they root very quickly)Then i top them regularly. Never had any problems with growing mint, gotta be the easiest plant on earth to grow.

I have tried a a few other varietes like the chocolate mint for example but in think the best one is the moroccan.
