Description
 
Fragrant, moss-like ground-cover mint. Less than one inch tall, it is the least rampant of all the mints, and is not cold hardy in zone 5. Native to Corsica, Sardinia, France, and mainland Italy. It grows to only about 1/4" tall, with very small leaves. Very spicy fragrance. Makes a beautiful companion planting with other herbs and ornamentals, and will tumble over container edges.
Landscape Uses, Planting and Care
  • Corsican mint, along with pennyroyal, is thought to be one of the best mints to grow as a companion to broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and other brassica plants. An insect repellent, it obscures the smell of surrounding crops throwing pests off the trail.
