DESCRIPTION

CORSICAN MINT, Mentha requienii

This very SHORT mint forms a thin green carpet of tiny bright green leaves, with tiny lavender flowers in summer. It is ideal for growing between paving or rocks in a rockery. It has a very strong smell quite out of proportion to its size, and in self-seeds freely. It spreads rapidly (some might call it invasive), but is easily controlled with herbicides or applications of liquid moss control (Iron) used at the lawn rate. It is very sensitive to leaf burn from fertilizers, even Osmocote will burn it, however, it will rapidly recover from mild burn. For best results liquid feed with a low rate occasionally, it is not a heavy feeder.

Looks great between pavers and stepping stones, one of my favorite plants to use for this area. Very shade tolerant for those heavily shaded areas, also great in full sun. Walking on it makes Corsican mint release its minty fragrance. It is also great in containers as it will eventually creep over the side and cover the side of the pot if not allowed to fry in the hot sun.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Corsican Mint is VERY SENSITIVE to changes in conditions when transplanted, best to lightly cover it (1/4 inch) when transplanting and let it grow up through the mulch.

Hardiness

Sunset zones 5-9, 12-24 | USDA zones 6-9

Colder winters it will die back and resprout in spring from seed.

Mild winters it remains evergreen. I do not recommend this for fall planting in cold climates as it can freeze out if temperatures go into the low 20's.

Height 1/4 inch | Width indefinite

20 SEEDS, SEED IS VERY TINY. MIX WITH FINE SAND OR SUGAR TO MAKE SOWING LARGE QUANTITIES EASIER.

BECAUSE THIS SEED IS SO TINY SHIPPING IS LESS THAN OTHER SEEDS, THEREFORE THE PRICE IS LOW.

MULTIPLE ORDERS OF THE SAME SEED ARE SHIPPED IN ONE PACKAGE.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS: SEED IS LIKE DUST, OPEN CAREFULLY, SURFACE SOW ON MOIST STARTING MIX AND KEEP DAMP UNTIL ESTABLISHED, SEED NEEDS LIGHT TO GERMINATE, DO NOT COVER, GERMINATION IN 2 WEEKS AT 70 DEGREES
