Jewel Mint Of Corsica, Corsican Mint
Evergreen, Ground covers, Perennials
These Mediterranean natives spread rapidly by underground stems and can be quite invasive; to keep them in bounds, grow them in pots or boxes. Tough and unfussy, they grow almost anywhere but perform best with light, moist, medium-rich soil, regular water; and full sun or partial shade. Plants disappear in winter in colder part of range. Replant about every 3 years; propagate from runners.Mentha requienii
Native to the Mediterranean, this creeping, mat-forming mint reaches only ½ in. high. Tiny, round bright green leaves give this plant a mossy appearance; leaves release a delightful minty or sagelike fragrance when bruised. Can be used as an aromatic filler between stepping-stones (won’t take heavy foot traffic). Bears tiny, tubular light purple flowers in summer.
