Hey Reinbeau,
The mint we have at my house is growing alongside a creek (in very wet soil).  My area is also known for its acid soil.  It must be a different kind of mint.  I have used mine in tea-very refreshing on a hot summer day!

That is probably Bog Mint, or Mentha aquatica.  In general the garden type mints do not like a heavy, wet, acidic soil.
