Corsican Mint

Mentha requienii



The smallest member of the mint family, also known as mini mint. This diminutive mint creeps along, hugging the ground with its deeply scented leaves and tiny purple flowers. The leaves are not as palatable like peppermint but release a more intense scent and is used as the flavoring of creme de mint. It likes a moist, dappled light location and can be used in containers or as a filler around stepping stones. Grown as an annual, it will often self- seed in colder zones. Spreads well even during its first year.

So far so good

Fantastic germination, ultra slow growth for mint. Then again it's a small leafed creeper, so perhaps I need to adjust my expectations. Smells pretty good but I'm not picking it in any quantity just yet.

Wonderful scent!!!

Excellent service. The seeds for the Corsican Mint are tiny. A gardening friend helped me start the seeds. We got them going. Then I transferred them to my patio area. Wish I could include a photo because all three sites are thriving!!! WOW!!!

Adorable ground cover

The seed wasn’t the easiest to germinate, but what did start is going strong. It’s making a great ground cover in some areas that I want to limit weeds in.
