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.

Hardiness

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

Height 1/4 inch | Width indefinite

SEED IS VERY TINY. BULK SEED = MULTIPLE ORDERS OF THE SAME SEED ARE SHIPPED IN ONE SEED PACKET.

since I am frequently asked how much seed you need I can only answer with this photo of a seedling that came up as a weed in a an area that I do not take care of, this is one season of growth. You can expect about half this growth in 1 season with good care. I cannot afford to start my cleaned seed, I save the debris after many hours and days of cleaning the seed out of it and sow that to start my plants each year. How much it will grow is not the issue, it is how to sow such tiny seed that is the real problem.

THIS SEED IS NEARLY MICROSCOPIC, VERY COSTLY TO PRODUCE AND GROWS LIKE A WEED - IF THE VERY SIMPLE GERMINATION REQUIREMENTS ARE MET. DUE TO THE EXPENSE OF PRODUCING IT NOW I MOSTLY SELL IT WHOLESALE FOR A FRACTION OF THIS PRICE BECAUSE IT IS A MUCH BETTER DEAL FOR ME TO SELL IT TO SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY PAYS ME!

ALL LISTINGS SUBJECT TO PRIOR SALES (AT MY YARD SALE FOR CASH) BECAUSE I. GET. PAID.

DUE TO SO MANY NONPAYING BUYERS ALL OF MY PRICES HAVE GONE UP, SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE! JUST TO MAKE THINGS PERFECTLY CLEAR I PREFER TO SELL NOTHING RATHER THAN RISK USING FEE PAY ESP. SINCE I KNOW MY QUALITY IS SOOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT IS OUT THERE!
