Mint Spearmint

The leaves of spearmint grow in a decussate, opposite formation

An Opposite leaf arrangement refers to two structures, one on each opposite side of the stem, typically leaves, branches, or flower parts. Leaf attachments are paired at each node; decussate if each successive pair is rotated 90° progressing along the stem; or distichous if not rotated, but two-ranked (in the same geometric flat-plane).
