What mint/spear varieties can be grown in Kennedale Texas, I believe zone 8a? Thank you!

Remember, mint likes it VERY wet. I had mint growing in an area I can only describe as a flood zone.... it actually made it's way over to the flood zone (it was a few feet to the other side) -- this area floods in the morning (outside water usage channeled that way) and it DOES NOT DRY (mud spot/wet spot)... sometimes at all, sometimes by about 3:00pm. The mint took over and out competed all the other "bog" type plants. When I think of Texas, I think TOO DRY -- but maybe not. I am not from Texas, I'm in a wet/humid 8a - my mint is in semi-shade...... all varieties grow, all varieties become very tough competition for other plants.... maybe almost invasive here.
