Corsican mint



Carpet Mint I have been obsessed with this adorable, carpet-like groundcover for years. It can handle light foot traffic, has sweet light blue flowers in summer and smells quite strongly of mint. An excellent choice for a rockery effect in cooler and shadier areas. I once saw it used as the floor of an outdoor shower, which made for fragrant bathing!! This whimsical little plant is also nice in containers where it will spill right over the edges. The strong fragrance and emerald green color are very pleasing to the senses. Perennial. Hardy to Zone 6.

Latin Name Mentha requienii
