DESCRIPTION

CORSICAN MINT, Mentha requienii

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

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

Very sensitive to fertilizer burn, best to only use weak liquid fertilizer

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

I am frequently asked how much seed you need I can only answer with this: I only grow it for seed harvest in containers. It is impossible to harvest seed from landscape plantings. 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 EPIDEMIC OF NON-PAYING BUYERS I MAINLY 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!

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SEEDS

I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING PAYPAL BECAUSE IT IS AN EBAY COMPANY AND NOT SAFE FOR A SELLER TO USE. I TAKE CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS ONLY. DUE TO NON-PAYING BUYERS LIKE GardenerGram I HAVE ENDED THE FREE SHIPPING AND NO LONGER TAKE ANY E - PAYMENTS. DONT LIKE IT? WELL YOU CAN USUALLY FIND IT ON EBAFIA FOR TWICE THIS PRICE OR HALF THIS SIZE.

You are welcome to email me with your want list esp. if you want more than the token amount listed here. Just click on the "ask seller a question" link to reach me.

NEARLY ALL OF THE DAVE'S GARDEN FEEDBACK WAS FOR LILIUM, BUT I HAD FAR MORE INVESTED IN NATIVE PLANTS AND BULBS, ALL OF WHICH ARE NOW EXTINCT DUE TO THE ANTI-FARMING ATTITUDE IN OREGON.
