I neglected to water my wall planters for three days, which meant instant death to my container plants in this California summer weather. Although my peppermint looked completely dead, I continued to water it hoping it would return. See Photo 1. Weeks later I noticed some signs of life in an unusual place. The mint is growing out of the planter's drainage hole! See Photo 2. That mint is one tough cookie!
