Corsican Mint
Mentha requienii
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Aromatic Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 7-9)
According to Greek legend, when the nymph Mintha offended the goddess Persephone, she transformed the unfortunate girl into a prostrate plant, but her beauty lives on in the sweet-smelling glossy green leaves. Where this mint is hardy, it is an inimitable ground cover, offering up a deliciously fresh scent with every step. Corsican mint is a low, carpet-forming mint with tiny leaves, almost moss-like in appearance, and soft to walk on. Sturdy enough to plant between flagstones or as a spreading groundcover in high-traffic areas, Corsican mint will quickly spread to create a pleasing walkway, thriving in half-shade and moist soil. A multi-purpose plant, it was the origin of the minty-coloured drink crème de menthe.
