DESCRIPTION

CORSICAN MINT, Mentha requienii,  crème de menthe.

This plant is also used in cuisine, most famously as the flavoring in crème de menthe.

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 it 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.

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.
