I take it from the latin name Apple Mint is a cultivar ?
Mentha spicata is not native, and the hybrid is believed to be of garden origin so also not native. To be a cultivar it would need an extra character like being variegated or albino, hence it might be M. v villosa CV Alba or 'Alba'. In this case it is var alopecuroides with round leaves like suaveolens, var villosa having leaves like spicata. Cultivar is a horticutural name, whereas variety is "scientific". Confused?
Garden plants in the wild are often an indication of a previous dwelling there,but in this case I suspect long ago dumping of garden rubbish is a more likely origin.
Whatever the cause,it obviously likes it there .
